For more than two years, VCS staff has been preparing for our accreditation team visit, and it took place March 21-23, 2022.

What is accreditation and when are schools accredited? How did our accreditation go?

“Students have a voice and personally that Christian integration is an important aspect in our environment,” Jin Jr, a member of the visiting accreditation team said, as she visited the Journalism Class Monday, March 21, 2002.

According to the Board of Education, accreditation is a verification that organizations use to make sure the school meets the standards and that the school is a learning environment. Accreditation can be granted for 2, 4, or 6-year terms. Public and private schools are accredited, but our school seeks DUAL accreditation, with the Association of Christian Schools International (ASCI) as well as the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), which accredits both public and private high schools and colleges in the West.

“I think it challenged me to make sure I was on task. I try to stay on task every week, but I think I had a little more incentive to stay on task this week,” Mr. Brian Gustafson said.

VCHS was accredited by both ACSI and WASC, one of only a few schools who earned dual accreditation. Vacaville Christian Schools earned the maximum term of six years before our next accreditation cycle. This means that classes our students take will be accepted by colleges all over the country.
