Introduction - International School Accreditation

An introduction to International School Accreditation

The NEASC accreditation process encourages school improvement through a process of continuous Self-Reflection and peer review. The award of NEASC accredited status indicates that the member school has achieved high standards of professional performance and is committed to continuing growth and development. Heads of schools and teachers from our accredited schools play an active role in assessing the progress of peer institutions as Visiting Team participants and contributing their knowledge and Best Practices.

In 2016, the NEASC Commission on International Education* introduced ACE Learning, its groundbreaking accreditation protocol which presents a fundamentally different approach to accreditation. To learn more about ACE, please view the ACE Introduction. It explains the conceptual framework that underpins ACE, describes the various phases of the accreditation process, and summarizes the most significant differences to current protocols.

*formerly called the Commission on American and International Schools Abroad (CAISA); new commission title approved in 2014
