INTRODUCTION:

In order to become accredited by the Association of Independent Schools of Florida (AISF), a school must be inspected by an AISF Evaluation Committee. Self-evaluation is an intrinsic and vital part of a school’s AISF accreditation process, and each school uses this Self-study form as a tool to assess itself prior to a visit by an Evaluation Committee. In turn, the Committee uses this completed form as a point of reference for its inspection of the school.

This form is based upon current AISF Standards of Accreditation (revised 1/14/2020) and will serve as a basis for the final report submitted by the Evaluation Committee to AISF’s Board of Directors. In addition, schools may use this form between formal AISF evaluations as a baseline by which the schools can measure growth.

As you complete this form, please remember that every school in AISF has been through this process. Your questions are welcome. You may contact the Chairperson of your Evaluation Committee at any time for clarification. Please take the time to review the AISF Bylaws and Standards for Accreditation thoroughly before beginning the accreditation or re-accreditation process.

NATURE AND PURPOSE OF THE ASSOCIATION

 

A. The nature of the Independent School is to provide educational opportunities unhampered by political considerations. Independent schools, including not-for-profit, non-profit, and for profit schools, add to the variety of educational choices in this country and enrich the quality of educational programs available to our nation’s youth.

B. AISF schools are varied in their purposes and programs, but they all emphasize educational fundamentals while tailoring their programs to meet the needs, capabilities, and interests of their students. AISF schools are committed to furthering their stated philosophies and objectives.

C. The purpose of this Association is to improve private education in Florida by monitoring its accredited and provisional members to maintain the accreditation standards, by fostering relations with the public, other schools, and local, state, regional, and national educational authorities and associations, and by promoting in-service education of teachers and administrators.
