What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is an incredibly important facet of your child education. It ensures the level of quality in the education you receive from a school or university; it also ensures your degrees will be recognized for the true achievements they are.
Before choosing a school, it is important that you know who accredits the school and what that accreditation means for your future. In fact, without accreditation, you will find yourself with a degree that may not be recognized everywhere.
Who provides Accreditation?
NEASC New England Association of Schools and Colleges or CIS Council of International Schools are communities committed to guarantee the high quality of education.These communities are working to establish and maintain high standards for all levels of education – from pre-kindergarten to the doctoral level.
These are independent, voluntary, nonprofit membership organizations which serves public and independent schools, colleges and universities worldwide.
