02 Aug Hills Achieves WASC Accreditation
Congratulations, Hills College!
The Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC) is proud to announce its decision to grant accreditation to Hills College!
Hills is currently the only school within Australia which holds this highly acclaimed accreditation.
Further Evidence that Hills is committed to ongoing reflection to ensure that Hills is an organisation that plans, supports and delivers supportive, responsive programs for our students that engender personal growth and confidence, where efforts and achievements are both recognised and celebrated. The accreditation ensures that Hills continues to provide world class education for your children.
This accreditation status is based on all of the information provided by the school with supporting evidence, classroom observations, and dialogue with all stakeholders. The committee evaluated Hills’ programs and operations to confirm their positive impact on student learning.
Hills College is honoured to receive this accreditation as it is reflects our mission to provide multiple pathways for our graduating students. The accrediting commission is a world-renowned association that works closely with the Office of Overseas Schools under the U.S. Department of State. It currently extends its service for 4,600 public, independent, church related schools and collaborates with the International Baccalaureate. The Accreditation process centres upon three beliefs;
- A school’s goal is successful student learning
- The school has a clear purpose and school-wide student goals
- The school engages in external and internal evaluations as part of continued school improvement to support student learning.
Engaging in this process allows our school to systematically shape a collective vision to ensure our academic standards and instruction develop globally responsible citizens.
