    LanguageBird is accredited by two accreditation agencies: the Western Association for Schools and Colleges (WASC) and AdvancED (Cognia).

    Our courses are also approved by the NCAA for student athletes and the University of California (UC).

    Our accreditation sources articulate and are reciprocal with other regional accreditation agencies, meaning earned credits through LanguageBird are generally transferable to other secondary educational institutions. 

    How do I get high school credit?

    LanguageBird will send a transcript to your high school or any colleges you apply to via Parchment (electronically) or through US mail. Grades from our courses can be transferred to your high school transcript. If you have not met your high school graduation requirements for world language, we recommend you talk to your school counselor and let them know you would like to take a LanguageBird® course. Most college-prep high schools require 2 years of world language. Some high schools will have you fill out a concurrent enrollment form or ask you to send a transcript once your LanguageBird® course is complete. We are happy to work with your high school administrator and counselors!
