CAIS Accreditation drives each school to continuously strive for excellence, to be more intentional in its practices, and to be accountable to all of its constituents.
Good schools continuously evaluate their education program and school operations; however, self-assessment alone can fall short with a limited internal perspective. The CAIS accreditation process achieves the dual purpose of accountability and school improvement - aligning school practices to the highest National Standards through a process that combines an internal self-assessment and an external peer review.
