About WASC

Western Association of Schools and Colleges
https://www.acswasc.org/

The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), a 501(c)(3) organization, is recognized as one of six regional associations that accredit public and private schools, colleges, and universities in the United States.

The Accrediting Commission for Schools
http://www.acswasc.org/

The Accrediting Commission for Schools conducts accrediting activities to public, independent, church-related, and proprietary schools of the following levels and types: elementary schools; junior high/middle/intermediate schools, comprehensive/college preparatory high schools, continuation high schools, alternative high schools, occupational/vocational high schools, regional occupational programs/centers, adult schools, and vocational skill centers. Many of the schools accredited also include postsecondary courses, e.g., courses which require a high school diploma or G.E.D.

Why Accreditation?

Certification to the public that the school is a trustworthy institution of learning validates the integrity of a school's program and student transcripts · Fosters improvement of the school's programs and operations to support student learning · Assures a school community that the school's purposes are appropriate and being accomplished through a viable educational program · A way to manage change through regular assessment, planning, implementing, monitoring and reassessment · Assists a school/district in establishing its priority areas for improvement as a result of the perpetual accreditation cycle that includes: · School self-assessment of the current educational program for students · Insight and perspective from the visiting committee · Regular school staff assessment of progress through the intervening years between full self-studies.
