WHAT IS ACCREDITATION?

According to the U.S. Department of Education, accreditation is the recognition that an institution maintains standards requisite for its graduates to gain admission to other reputable institutions of higher learning or to achieve credentials for professional practice. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions meets acceptable levels of American educational quality.

The U.S. Department of Education does not have the authority to accredit private or public elementary or secondary schools,” and the Department does not recognize accrediting bodies for the accreditation of private or public elementary and secondary schools. However, the U.S. Department of Education does recognize accrediting bodies for the accreditation of institutions of higher (postsecondary) education. If an accrediting body which is recognized by the Department for higher education also accredits elementary and secondary schools, the Department’s recognition applies only to the agency’s accreditation of postsecondary institutions.“

WHAT DOES AIAASC DO?

AIAASC focuses on providing guidance to the school’s management and teaching staff on innovative educational systems. Additionally, AIAASC requires their member schools to provide assurances that the grades assigned to students accurately reflect the students’ work. AIAASC also monitors each of its member school’s issuance of student grades for possible grade inflation.

 

This includes checking the transcripts that AIAASC stamps and forwards to the Ministry of Education. It also involves random spot checking to see if transcripts appear to be grade inflated. If so, we then request to see the entire work of the student that led to the assignment of that grade. If we find that the grades assigned do not accurately reflect the student’s work, we take steps to resolve the issue with the school, by placing the school on probation or revoking the accreditation status of the school.

 

Real success is not built on false achievements! Our role is to help students succeed in college life and career life. We must avoid the trap of giving students and their families an inflated sense of their accomplishments.

WHAT PARENTS SHOULD KNOW?

AIAASC works in parallel with parents’ goals of achieving the best for their children. Choosing accredited schools for your children is a critical decision to ensure that their education and high school degrees are valued  among international educational institutions. Graduating from an accredited school is an important factor in being admitted to colleges and universities.

 

AIAASC accreditation is not easily granted to schools. Our accreditation process requires the school to demonstrate  excellence in their systems, practices, policies, and daily operations. The school is also required to abide by a set of globally recognized and accepted standards.

 

Attending an AIAASC accredited school is something to be proud of. One of AIAASC’s benefits is to prepare students for future careers starting from K-12 school education. Through our partner programs, AIAASC provides students with certified courses that they can use to build their resumes for college application and enrollment in the programs of their choice.
