WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) is the accrediting body that confirms our program at CIHS meets the requirements for colleges and universities in the United States. Accreditation validates our transcripts and ensures our students will be eligible for acceptance to 4-year colleges and universities.

The WASC process is a 6-year cycle, which includes a Self-Study Report, a four-day visit from the WASC Visiting Committee (VC), and usually a Mid-Cycle Progress Report in the third year. 

All stakeholders will be involved in contributing to the Self-Study Report. CIHS stakeholders include students, parents, faculty, staff, site and district administration, and community members.
