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
