About the Accreditation Workshop
The accreditation process begins with attendance at an Accreditation Workshop where the Commission provides training and resources which will assist schools as they strive towards a meaningful self-evaluation and on-site evaluation experience.

The Accreditation Workshop provides an opportunity for participants gain a better understanding of the Commission’s standards and procedures, as well as to share experiences with other schools that will be pursuing accreditation. According to the Standards of Accreditation, "the full-time, on-site director or appropriate management team representative (see Section I (A)(1)(a), Substantive Standards, Standards of Accreditation) of the school must attend an accreditation workshop prior to the submission of the application for accreditation. 

Preparing for the Accreditation Workshop
The best way ensure a successful experience at the workshop is to become familiar with ACCSC’s Standards of Accreditation prior to the workshop. In our experience, reading the Standards of Accreditation is an essential preparatory step as it will serve as a foundation for your learning and understanding of ACCSC’s requirements and processes. 

A downloadable version of the Standards of Accreditation, as well as the Application for Initial Accreditation Parts I & II are available on our website at
