Val Pighin is the Director of Accreditation and Research at Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS). She joined the CAIS team in summer 2012 after relocating to the Niagara Region from Barrie, Ontario. Although her background in IT and Finance was key in bringing Val to CAIS, by fall of 2012 she was immersed in the CAIS Independent School Community and the Accreditation Program.
Working closely with the ED and the school community, as well as participating in Board meetings, conferences, leadership institutes, and committee meeting, strengthened Val's understanding of the independent school community and the important role that CAIS plays within that community.
In 2018, Val earned her designation with the CCVA as a Certified Volunteer Administrator, graduated from the CAIS Leadership Institute and was appointed Director of Accreditation and Research with CAIS. She will also join the LI faculty in November 2018 facilitating the Accreditation and School Improvement module.
