Sora is Accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges

The team at Sora Schools is excited to announce that our high school program has been officially accredited for grades 9 through 12 by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges!

Accreditation is a multifaceted evaluation process that schools and school systems voluntarily use. It demonstrates that they are meeting a defined set of research-based performance standards. Learn more about why accreditation matters here.

ACS WASC is a world-renowned accrediting association and one of the six regional accrediting agencies in the United States. It provides assistance to schools worldwide, especially in California, Hawaii, Guam, Asia, the Pacific Region, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. The organization has worked with over 5,200 public, independent, church-related, and proprietary pre-K–12 and adult schools. It also works with 20 associations in joint accreditation processes, and collaborates with other organizations such as the California Department of Education (CDE).

ACS WASC advances and validates quality ongoing school improvement by supporting its private and public elementary, secondary, and postsecondary member institutions to engage in a rigorous and relevant self-evaluation and peer review process that focuses on student learning. Their mission is built on 3 beliefs: a school’s goal is successful student learning, each school has a clear purpose and school-wide learner outcomes, and each school engages in collaborative self-reflection and analysis to assess progress in achieving its mission, vision, and school-wide learner outcomes.

At Sora, we’re proud to be recognized by a venerable institution that believes in our mission to reimagine high school education and ultimately build the best high school in the world.
