Adding Grades or Programs to a VAIS Accredited School

A school creating a new program or adding new grades should establish the programs, note in their promotional materials that the new programs or grades are not accredited at that time, and seek re-accreditation within its existing accreditation cycle. If a visit is an interim, the school must write a separate report about the grades added which includes rationale and mission alignment. A school may request a new accreditation cycle beginning with a full self-study process including the new program or grades. If accreditation is mentioned in the school's literature, note what grades and programs are accredited.
