Achieving WASC accreditation holds a mirror to our practices, allowing us to assess and enhance our educational offerings in alignment with industry standards.



What is WASC Accreditation



WASC accreditation is a rigorous and comprehensive evaluation process conducted by the Accrediting Commission for Schools Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC). This esteemed accreditation body assesses various dimensions of an educational institution, ensuring that it meets or exceeds established standards of quality and effectiveness. The accreditation process encompasses an in-depth examination of curriculum, faculty qualifications, student support services, infrastructure, and institutional effectiveness. Successfully achieving WASC accreditation will signify that CISK adheres to the highest educational standards and is committed to continuous improvement.

This includes students, parents, teachers, staff, alumni, and members of the local community.
