Improving Education Through Accreditation
Founded in 1885, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) has been working to establish and maintain high standards for all levels of education – from pre-kindergarten to the doctoral level - longer than any other accreditation agency in the United States.
NEASC is an independent, voluntary, nonprofit membership organization which connects and serves over 2,000 public and independent schools, technical/career institutions, colleges and universities in New England plus International Schools in more than 65 nations worldwide. A globally recognized standard of excellence, NEASC Accreditation attests to a school’s high quality and integrity. NEASC is comprised of four commissions which decide matters of accreditation in the context of research-driven standards reviewed by their membership.
“Accreditation has been a longstanding stimulus for educational improvement,” says Cameron C. Staples, President/CEO of NEASC. “NEASC prides itself on its enduring commitment to self-regulation and peer-review. The peer-review process brings educators together and allows for honest, objective and comprehensive evaluations carried out with the utmost integrity and commitment to research-driven standards.”
