arts schools evaluation

guide to assessing your arts school

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Precollegiate Arts Schools (ACCPAS) was established in 2001 by the Council of Arts Accrediting Associations to assess and accredit schools such as those that belong to the Arts Schools Network.

ACCPAS and the Arts Schools Network have collaboratively developed A Guide to Assessing Your Arts Schools to help arts schools assess their mission, operations, and programs and serve as an introduction to the accreditation process. We hope that working through the Guide with your staff, faculty, and trustees will be an inspirational experience and will lead to a healthy future for your school.

The Arts Schools Network and ACCPAS share a long-term association and mutual commitment to advance the field of focused K-12 arts education. We look forward to continuing our partnership in service to the field.
