Independent schools must meet all fifteen Standards for Accreditation. If a school is found not to be in compliance with one or more standard, the Commission on Independent Schools will set a date by which the standard(s) must be met if the school is to retain its accreditation.
The Commission has established “suggested indicators” for each standard that it feels represent good practices which schools are encouraged to meet. Schools are not required to comply with all indicators, however, and are welcome to submit other data and information to document their compliance with the standards.
Read about each CIS Standard and its indicators below.
