Accreditation & Graduation


KONOS Academy is accredited with quality through the Georgia Accrediting Commission. The Georgia Accrediting Commission has provided and continues to provide leadership for education in Georgia. The accrediting process stimulates schools to provide better and safer physical facilities, and to improve the qualifications of staff members, teaching conditions, and curriculum. It also provides a valid means of judging the quality of schools. Accreditation by the Georgia Accrediting Commission has always been a way of recognizing schools with good educational programs. Its standards continue to serve as guides for those who want to develop good programs.

The mission of the Georgia Accrediting Commission is twofold:

  1. to establish standards promoting instruction of high quality for children in Georgia and
  2. to encourage schools to meet the established standards.

GAC provides an accreditation process designed to establish and uphold standards, to strengthen the quality of education in each school, and to assure its membership and the general public that the established standards are related to the best educational practices.

Every course (both core and supplementary) is accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission.

Transcript Service

KONOS Academy provides, upon request, an accredited transcript for attending students. This transcript will reflect the total student, including core courses and electives. Test scores and extra curricula activities can also be noted. Our guidance counselor, Holly Hampton, will work with you to assure that your student will have all required courses to graduate in the state of Georgia. She will also assist as you plan for college, including applying for the HOPE Scholarship, if applicable. Testing reminders will also be shared. Let KONOS help you as you navigate the high school years. For more information and to discuss the fee schedule for obtaining a college transcript, please contact Holly Hampton.

College Prep

We follow the state of Georgia’s requirements for a college-prep diploma. We do not spoon-feed our students. Because they are only in class one day a week, they must develop the skill of being self-learners. Our students also learn the skill of time management. They are given assignments during class, then must learn how to budget their time to be prepared for the next week’s class. Our courses are academically rigorous. When students graduate from KONOS, they will know how to write and give a speech, both skills that they will need in college. Our students are well rounded, as they are immersed in classical literature and are taught the big picture of history.

Graduation Requirements
