COMMISSION FOR ACCREDITATION
The Commission for Accreditation oversees the Self Study and evaluation of candidate schools. Members of the PAIS Commission for Accreditation are appointed from among member accredited schools. For each school evaluation, the Commission considers the Report of the Visiting Committee and makes a recommendation for accreditation to the PAIS Board for ratification.

Commissioners and PAIS Board members often assume additional responsibilities to uphold and strengthen the quality of independent schools. They may chair visitation committees, assist candidate schools in understanding the PAIS accreditation standards and processes, and provide mentoring to schools facing special challenges.
