VSAS Wows Accreditation Team
The Volcano School of Arts & Sciences received rave reviews from the Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC) following their visit to determine renewal of the school’s accreditation status. The most exciting feedback we received was that the committee did not have any recommendations for revisions to our school action plan. This is very rare. In fact, the chairperson commented that it was the best plan she has ever seen in her 30 years of serving on accreditation review teams! Please visit our website www.volcanoschool.net to read the strengths and critical areas for follow-up identified by the WASC committee. We will receive the results of our assigned term in a couple months, and are expected the maximum term of six years.
