Accreditation is Important

Both Cognia and ACTS and recognized by the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission and sit as Commissioners.
For potential athletes at NCAA institutions, Orion High Schools courses meet NCAA's criteria for core course eligibility. Upon admission, we will discuss that with you if applicable.
