IASA received accreditation in 2011 and is currently accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement. What does this mean? It means that IASA met the standards deemed important by the SACS-CASI and that IASA has the conditions and factors at play that contribute to a quality education and operational effectiveness. IASA was found to have:
- Stable governance, management, and leadership;
- A coherent course of study;
- A reliable system by which to assess students’ progress;
- Instructors who have a clear understanding of what they aim to teach, how, and why; and access to the resources they need.
IASA will be undergoing reaccreditation on April 11-12, 2016. Representatives from SACS-CASI will be at the IASA meeting with faculty, staff, parents, students and volunteers. Each accreditation cycle lasts for aperiod of five (5) years. For more information on SACS-CASI please visit http://www.advanc-ed.org/
