Accreditation is extremely vital to a school because it assures the students that the school's curricula and student body performance either meet or exceed particular standards. Earning accreditation implies the institution has at least met the thorough requirements and teaches pertinent curricula based on verified data. It's also important to note that being regionally accredited is the most recognized type of accreditation in the United States.
