Accrediting Our Private Schools

October 22, 2018 from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

195 CDN + HST

In this seminar Dr. Miller will discuss the advantages associated with school accreditation. In its last memo to private schools, the MOE wrote:

“…schools must not represent, imply or otherwise advertise that the Ministry has approved, accredited,
regulated, licenced or registered them with the Ministry…”

Accreditation is the means for private schools to demonstrate adherence to rigorous operational and academic standards. Since the MOE does not accredit private schools, how can we pursue accreditation and demonstrate to parents and the broader community adherence to exemplary educational standards? Dr. Miller will discuss the accreditation process with references to AdvancED Accreditation, the world’s largest international accrediting agency.

Fees include handouts and parking.
