WASC Accreditation

Placer School for Adults has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) since 2012.


Why is this important?

Here are just a few of the reasons why WASC accreditation is important to the community and our students:

  • Assures a school’s community and stakeholders that the school’s purposes are appropriate and being accomplished through a viable education program  — a trustworthy institution for student learning

  • Validates the integrity of the school’s program and transcripts

  • Facilitates transfer of credits to other English-speaking schools — critical for college/university acceptance worldwide

  • Provides a peer reviewed process for regularly examining programs, procedures, and data around school goals and student learning through data analysis, reflection, inquiry, and dialogue

  • Builds a professional culture to support the schoolwide action plan

  • Fosters the continuous improvement of the school’s programs and operations to support student learning
