AdvancED, the largest community of education professionals in the world, is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. With more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, AdvancED’s goal isn’t to certify that schools are good enough, but to help schools improve.
The accreditation process includes collecting student performance data, creating a quality improvement plan, and demonstration of compliance with AdvancED, government and partnership requirements. An external review provides the school system with findings on Powerful Practices, Opportunities for Improvement, and Improvement Priorities.
The accreditation is valid for five years.
