SAIS-Cognia Accreditation

A team from the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) and Cognia visited Wesleyan from Nov. 5-7, 2023. 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 School Improvement Plan. Wesleyan is subject to reaccreditation by SAIS-Cognia every five years.

Months of preparation by Wesleyan administrators, faculty, and staff have resulted in a unanimous reaccreditation recommendation by this SAIS-Cognia 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-Cognia with commendations and recommendations, which have been incorporated into a complete School Improvement Plan report. Click here to review the report.
