What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is defined as an affirmation of Quality. The Accreditation of a school would mean certification of a school’s functioning assessed on the basis of predetermined norms in pre-defined areas. The Accreditation is actually intended to serve the purpose of a handy index for the stakeholders since it would give an immediate insight about the state of affairs in a school.

Thus, Accreditation is a

  • means of demonstrating confidence in the school’s purpose, performance, human and financial resources
  • process of quality assessment based on self-analysis and peer interaction
  • process by which schools continuously upgrade their educational quality and services through constant reflection
  • certificate or status granted to a school which meets commonly accepted standards of quality and excellence.
