2015 CAIS Accreditation Guidelines

Review the new CAIS Accreditation Guidelines that are being piloted this school year. We welcome your feedback!


Why Accreditation Matters

The aim of accreditation is to encourage the highest educational standards while also respecting the individual mission of each CAIS school. In administering the accreditation process, CAIS prompts each school to be accountable to all of its constituents, to be more intentional in its practices, and to constantly strive for excellence for all students.



accreditation




promotes a reflective and collaborative school improvement process;


examines the overall program and operations of the entire school;


provides school leaders with validation of current programs and services and suggested planning for future growth and development;


provides educators with valuable professional development and information about effective practices nationally and globally;


assures parents and the general public that the school is focused on providing a safe and enriching learning environment while maintaining an efficient and effective operation;


provides a school’s Board of Governors with an independent, non-governmental validation that the school they oversee is effectively delivering a quality educational experience to its students in a manner that is sustainable;


eases the transition students face as they move from one internationally accredited school to another;


provides education leaders at all levels with deserved recognition for going above and beyond the minimum to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to excellence and learning;


fulfils a requirement for regular membership in CAIS.
