Accreditation is designed to help educational institutions boost their ongoing performance efforts for the benefit of their students. Accreditation matters because students deserve the highest level of educational excellence possible. The accreditation process nurtures and supports individual school improvement and ensures alignment with overall School District improvement goals. It incorporates a performance-based model that reflects a five-year cycle of continuous improvement.
Another benefit for students is to gain greater access to federal loans, scholarships, military programs, and colleges that require students to have attended an accredited institution.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools works with AdvancED to accredit schools. The AdvancED Accreditation Process is comprehensive, evaluating all parts of our institution. The process focuses on our vision and goals, evaluates teaching and learning, and examines how results are documented and resources are allocated. The five AdvancED Standards are the foundation of the Accreditation Process and serve as your guide to continuous improvement.
