The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) is a globally recognized standard of excellence. Accreditation through NEASC’s Commission on International Education (NEASC-CIE) attests to a school’s high quality and integrity, giving parents, universities, potential employees, and Ministries of Education the assurance that a school is safe, effective, and sustainable. NEASC’s ACE Learning framework gives schools a simple, yet powerful guide to building and developing schools of the future that will stand out among their peers.
