Private Schools

ACS WASC accredits private schools throughout the region. ACS WASC accreditation is an ongoing cycle of quality whereby schools demonstrate the capacity, commitment, and competence to support high-quality student learning and ongoing school improvement. The ACS WASC Focus on Learning protocol guides schools into an ongoing improvement process that includes implementation, assessment, and refinement of the schoolwide action plan on an annual basis. Appropriate reports and reviews throughout the six-year cycle of accreditation support this process.

ACS WASC also works collaboratively with a variety of private school associations. Separate agreements exist with respect to the use of protocols and procedures for these joint processes. Protocols and self-study materials for joint affiliation private schools can be found by clicking on the following link:  Joint Affiliation Private Schools
