WASC Accredits Armenian Sisters' Academy for a Six Year Term!


On Sunday, April 18, 2010, four educators, selected by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), arrived at our school to conduct their formal visit and evaluate the school’s first self-study report. The visit lasted through Wednesday, April 21, 2010.


Preparations for the visit had begun in early 2009.ᅠ Several home groups and focus groups had been formed to study, analyze and document our efforts with regard to different aspects of school operation and education.


During their three-day visit, WASC spoke with teachers and staff, students, and members of the home and focus groups.ᅠ After giving very positive feedback about our school, the visiting committee prepared a report, detailing its recommendations for accreditation.ᅠ In July 2010, WASC announced that it had granted a six-year accreditation term to our school, with a mid-term visit in 2013.


The WASC visit validated what our school community had known all along:ᅠ “Our Focus is on Learning!”
