CATASAUQUA, PA – June 16, 2021 — Edovate Learning Corp., a leader in online learning, personalized education, and edTech solutions, has received publisher accreditation from the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC), a world-renowned accrediting association and one of the six regional accrediting agencies in the United States, paving the way for Edovate to become an approved publisher with the University of California (UC) A-G policies.
Accreditation as an online course publisher that employs instructors must be earned as a supplementary education center/program from the ACS WASC. Through this accreditation, and as an approved publisher with the University of California, Edovate will be able to offer high school students comprehensive learning programs that meet the college preparatory rigor required by the University of California for all content areas, for students enrolling in a UC higher education program.
By achieving this supplemental accreditation from the ACS WASC, Edovate demonstrates its intent to align its programs and services with requirements set by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges. This accreditation offers evidence to students who are participating in Edovate’s learning programs–but achieving accreditation through a school other than Bridgeway Academy–that Edovate’s programs align with ACS WASC requirements.
Through this accreditation, Edovate Learning Corp. intends to honor the ACS WASC mission, which is to “advance and validate quality ongoing school improvement by supporting its institutions to engage in a rigorous and relevant self-evaluation and peer review process that focuses on student learning.” This mission is built upon the ACS WASC beliefs that “a school’s goal is successful student learning; each school has a clear purpose and schoolwide learner outcomes; and for ongoing school improvement, each school engages in collaborative self-reflection and analysis to assess programs in achieving its mission, vision, and schoolwide learner outcomes.”
The Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges works closely with the Office of Overseas Schools under the U.S. Department of State and provides assistance to schools worldwide. The ACS WASC, extends its services to over 5,200 public, independent, church-related, and proprietary pre-K–12 and adult schools, and works with 20 associations in joint accreditation processes.
Edovate’s ACS WASC accreditation is valid through June 30, 2024, at which point it must complete a self-study assessment and submit a self-study report, and allow a ACS WASC site visit to determine accreditation renewal.
