NEW ENGLAND ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES
Commission on Independent Schools
This online course introduces participants to the principles and practices of NEASC Accreditation. Mission-based, peer-reviewed accreditation depends on accreditors understanding the intent of the Standards and applying that understanding to school realities. The surest measure of effective NEASC Accreditation is the understanding, skills, and confidence you bring to the process as either a Visiting Committee member or a Self-Study Steering Committee member.
This course will help you “think like an accreditor” as you consider the programs, practices, and approaches at your own school. The perspective you gain through this exercise will build a foundation for the course following this one.
By the end of the training, you’ll be able to:
- Give an overview of the NEASC Commission on Independent Schools.
- Explain the 20|20 Standards.
- Identify the foundation and program Standards and indicators.
- Assess the Standards.
