AIAASC NewsInternational School Accreditation

The American International Accreditation Association of Schools and Colleges (AIAASC) is excited to announce its partnership with Western Association of Schools and Colleges  (WASC) to offer joint accreditation to international schools worldwide.

The partnership will hope to further strengthen international ties in the field of education. The joint accreditation process for schools will be a major boost for students and give them a head start in a competitive global scenario.

Both AIAASC and WASC are well-reputed accreditation bodies that have carefully structured parameters with the high standards and indicators to assess the quality of education provided in international schools. The partnership will further pave way for schools to attain high standards of education and assist their students in being accepted to colleges and universities.
