Standards for Membership

ISACS Standards for Membership, 19th edition

Because of the diversity in the ISACS membership of schools and the corresponding variation in mission, program, procedures, and style, these standards have been developed to focus on the elements that should be common to all high-quality independent schools. The following list of standards for membership has been developed, and reviewed periodically, to describe the kind of school that ISACS believes it can serve and that, in turn, can benefit from the ISACS network and services. ISACS does not suggest that the only good schools are those that meet its standards. ISACS does hold that its standards describe the type of school represented in its membership. Accreditation by ISACS assures the public that these standards have been met and that the school’s success in meeting the standards is periodically reviewed.
