LOS ANGELES—Holy Martyrs Cabayan Elementary and Ferrahian High School administration have received confirmation from WASC awarding the school with a six-year accreditation status, with a midterm report. This is the highest accreditation status that WASC bestows to a school.
According to this status “There is compelling evidence that the school needs little, if any, additional support for high-quality student learning and the implementation, monitoring, and accomplishment of the school-wide action plan, including the identified critical areas for follow-up.”
The Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC) is one of six regional accrediting associations in the United States. The Accrediting Commission for Schools, WASC, extends its services to over 4,500 public, independent, church-related, and proprietary pre-K–12 and adult schools, works with 16 associations in joint accreditation processes, and collaborates with other educational organizations.
The ACS WASC accreditation process fosters excellence in elementary, secondary, and adult education by encouraging school improvement. WASC accreditation recognizes schools that meet an acceptable level of quality, in accordance with established, research-based WASC criteria.
