ACS Accreditation

The 9 Independent California Virtual Academies are Fully Accredited

Each of the nine California Virtual Academies is fully accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Schools (ACS) of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) for all academies, grades K–12.

The ACS uses the highest performance standards and research-based criteria when identifying schools or districts that provide exemplary education to their students.

The schools were recognized for offering a highly regarded, high-quality education to all students in grades K–12, and, through ongoing assessments, agrees to continue to meet the expectations and criteria set forth by the ACS and WASC, as well as exhibit self-improvement on an ongoing basis.

Administrators and families trust the mission of our schools to provide an education that's grounded in high academic standards, so that all children can achieve their full academic potential. We take this mission seriously, and it is an honor to be recognized by ACS and WASC.

The core philosophy of the California Virtual Academies is that all young people can achieve academic excellence when given access to rigorous instruction, informed guidance, and individual attention. Using this philosophy, we will continue to demonstrate our commitment to ensuring students receive a quality education.

As a WASC-accredited charter school, we hope to set an example as a valued curriculum and education provider that ensures an exceptional educational experience for thousands of students across the state.
