This table outlines the status of schools that are in the process of seeking accreditation.

There are five steps in the accreditation process:

  1. A school indicates its intention to apply for accreditation by submitting an initial Eligibility Application.
  2. A school completes an Eligibility Packet to demonstrate eligibility for accreditation.
  3. Once the Eligibility Packet is approved by ACHENA, a school is granted Candidacy Status.  These schools are deemed eligible for accreditation and their curriculum is ACHENA approved.
  4. A school that is a Candidate for accreditation must prepare and submit a self-study and undergo a peer review site visit.
  5. A school that has successfully completed the self-study and peer review site visit is granted accreditation for five years. Accredited schools submit annual reports and must apply for reaccreditation in accordance with the established timeline.
