Ongoing Accreditation

An accredited elementary, middle, or high school must host an Accreditation Visiting Team every 10 years; e.g. the Decennial Visit. Because Accreditation is an ongoing process, NEASC expects that members schools will make continuous efforts between visits to address the recommendations highlighted during the Decennial Visit and maintain communications about their progress through required follow up reports and any special progress reports that may be requested. It is the role of the Commission to monitor the progress of schools as they address the Standards for Accreditation. 

Application for Accreditation

An Application for Accreditation must be completed and returned to the Commission office in order for a Decennnial Visit to be scheduled. Once the Commission office processes the application, the principal will be notified of the scheduled Visiting Team dates.
