ACSI and WASC Accredited

ICAN is formally accredited by both the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  

What does accreditation mean?

Accreditation means that ICAN’s academic program and school environment have been examined and validated by two internationally recognized school-accrediting agencies, ACSI and WASC.​  It also means that students' records are recognized and accepted by schools and universities worldwide.  ​More detailed information about ACSI and WASC accreditation standards can be found at the web sites below.
