At the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools, we recognize there is no one-size-fits-all approach to accreditation.
That’s why we are proud to partner with more than 30 regional, international and special-purpose accrediting agencies to offer schools cooperative – or dual – accreditation.
Accreditation through Middle States – the worldwide leader in accreditation and school improvement – can be seamlessly coordinated with our partner agencies, effectively providing your school the best of both worlds.
Schools cooperatively accredited through Middle States have access to our various accreditation protocols, including options for schools that are just developing and those that are already high performing.
Other value-added benefits of dual accreditation with Middle States include:
- Eligibility to apply for special recognition of exemplary programs though our Programs of Distinction initiative.
- Access to a worldwide network of more than 2,700 member schools and added credibility that your school is on par with similar schools around the globe.
- Multiple perspectives and increased diversity among peer evaluators, adding to the validity and reliability of your school’s self study.
