LARK Education Associates - Accreditation Consulting

LARK Education Associates specializes in NACCAS consulting services for NACCAS applicant and accredited institutions.  Our NACCAS Accreditation Consultants have over 30 years of experience in NACCAS accreditation which includes managing cosmetology and barber schools as well as employment as accreditation specialists at the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts & Sciences (NACCAS).

Our NACCAS Accreditation Consultants have been in your shoes.  One of our NACCAS Accreditation Consultants has started cosmetology and barber colleges from the ground up.  Our accreditation consultants know how to get a school licensed, accredited, and ultimately participating in Title IV funding with the United States Department of Education.  LARK Education Associates knows how to remain in compliance with federal, state, and accrediting bodies.  LARK Education Associates realizes that time is money and we take pride in helping institutions obtain initial accreditation in the shortest amount of time possible.

Our accreditation consultants have helped countless schools obtain and maintain their accreditation, both through conducting consultations and by providing technical assistance over the telephone.  Our accreditation consultants have completed many applications, compiled many institutional self-studies, and assisted many schools with their accreditation visits.  Additionally, while working at NACCAS our associates have conducted hundreds of visits, including candidate consultations, initial accreditation, renewal of accreditation, change of ownership, additional location, special consultations, and unannounced visits.  If you have a question in regards to accreditation, we're here to assist you.

Accreditation can seem like a difficult, complicated, and time consuming process, but it doesn't have to be.  LARK Education Associates' accreditation specialists are here to help you navigate that process but recognize that a "One size fits all" approach does not work.  Our accreditation experts excel at tailoring and implementing plans for the specific needs and circumstances of each client.   

Our NACCAS Consultants visit your institution and evaluate what your current policies and practices are to determine which are and are not in compliance with accreditation standards, and then bring them all into compliance.  Our consultants believe in working smarter, rather than harder.  Their goal is to provide you with the training and tools necessary to develop institutional self-sufficiency in accreditation compliance.

The mission of LARK Education Associates is to provide proprietary, post-secondary institutions with expertise in accreditation compliance with the goal of protecting the integrity and professionalism of institutions providing financial aid.
