About Accreditation

Accreditation is the affirmation that a school provides quality education. It is also a means of showing confidence in the institution's performance.

Accreditation by NEASC indicates that a school meets or exceeds established criteria within the profession for the assessment of institutional quality through a periodic process of self-study and peer review. An accredited school has the resources to achieve its stated purposes and provides evidence that its students are benefiting from the curricular and co-curricular program offered at the school. This means that NEASC accreditation attests to substantial compliance with established qualitative standards, integrity in statements to the public describing the institution's program, institutional commitment to improvement, and sufficiency of institutional resources. CAISA Accreditation means meeting high level, challenging standards, which are designed specifically by and for American / International Schools.
