The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is excited to announce its partnership with American International Accreditation Association of Schools and Colleges (AIAASC) to offer joint accreditation to international schools worldwide.
The partnership will hope to further strengthen international ties in the field of education. The joint accreditation process for schools will be a major boost for students and give them a head start in a competitive global scenario.
Both AIAASC and WASC are well-reputed accreditation bodies that have carefully structured parameters with the high standards and indicators to assess the quality of education provided in international schools. The partnership will further pave way for schools to attain high standards of education and assist their students in being accepted to colleges and universities.
“Through this new partnership with ACS WASC, AIAASC is pleased to highlight our shared values and commitment to high-quality international education around the world. We are excited to create unique opportunities for members of both organizations to engage with a broader array of school improvement resources, cultivate global peer connections, and access a robust foundation of support for student well-being,” says Dr. Ronald J Kovach, chairman of AIAASC.
“By acknowledging this fresh membership pathway, we reaffirm our dedication to assisting top-notch international schools worldwide by expanding access and options. WASC shares our unwavering commitment to enhancing schools through rigorous quality assurance standards, thereby contributing to the prosperity of schools and communities,” says Dr. Barry Groves, president of ACS WASC.
“AIAASC is delighted to welcome ACS WASC as a partner and to recognize the quality of its accreditation system as a route to AIAASC membership. Our two organizations share a fundamental emphasis on high quality learning, well-being and the safeguarding of children worldwide. This positive step forward will enrich our membership and broaden our horizons through the sharing of new ideas and different perspectives,” says Dr. Mohanalakshmi, associate executive director of AIAASC.
