St. John Bosco Academy recently renewed their accreditation as well as gained an additional accreditation.  The school renewed their accreditation through Cognia (formerly AdvancEd), which they have held since 2007.  This accreditation certifies that the school meets State of Idaho requirements. It also allows the school to award diplomas to graduates which certify they met Idaho state graduation requirements.  In addition to the accreditation through Cognia, the school recently gained accreditation through the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA).  This group accredits Catholic schools in the state of Idaho, and certifies that St. John Bosco Academy maintains an authentic Catholic identity as a private school within the Diocese of Boise.
