SAIS-SACS Accreditation

A team from the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) visited Wesleyan from October 29-31, 2012. During this three-day site visit, the five-member Peer Review Team interviewed Wesleyan board members, parents, students, teachers, administrators, alumni and committee heads in order to make their final accreditation recommendation. 

School accreditation is a type of quality assurance process through which the services and operations of schools are evaluated by an external body to determine if established standards are being met. As part of this process, the school is expected to engage in and develop a self-improvement plan. Wesleyan is subject to re-accreditation by SAIS-SACS every five years.

Months of preparation by Wesleyan administrators, faculty and staff has resulted in a unanimous re-accreditation recommendation by this SAIS-SACS Peer Review Team. They presented their findings during a staff assembly at the end of their visit. Wesleyan received the formal written report from SAIS-SACS with commendations and recommendations, which has been incorporated into a complete School Improvement Plan.
