Ongoing Accreditation

An accredited 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. 

Training workshops and seminars are regularly scheduled in order to provide schools with guidance regarding the follow up reports and to assist schools in future planning and implementing school improvement.

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. 

To view instructions and how to request an application, select the year in which your school is scheduled to host its next Accreditation Visit:
