In 2017, CRA became the first and only school in Northern Kentucky to be accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS). The school underwent a rigorous process of examining and documenting our governance practices, curriculum, fiscal and personnel policies, facilities, health and safety practices, teacher preparation, and learner outcomes to demonstrate a strict adherence to the high quality standards to which the AMS holds its accredited schools. In addition the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services licenses the Toddler, Early Childhood, and Aftercare programs, which are 5-STAR-rated by the Kentucky All Stars program.

As a result of the AMS accreditation status, CRA is now also accredited by the National Council for Private School Accreditation.

The CRA teacher education program is accredited by the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education as well as affiliated with the American Montessori Society which holds its faculty and programing to standards of best practice and excellence when working with adult learners.

In addition, this portion of the program is also licensed by the Kentucky Commission on Proprietary Education.
