On-Site Visit

The on-site visit takes place upon the completion of the school's Self-Study. In this phase of the process the Committee develops a team, who are peers of the school faculty and administration, and sends the team to the school to read the Self-Study and spend three or four days visiting the school and its classrooms, interviewing faculty, parents and other stakeholders, students and administrators. The Visiting Team’s purpose is to seek evidence of the conclusions the school has made about itself and, subsequently, present its observations about how well the institution aligns with the Committee’s Standards. Those findings are then presented to the school in a report form, identifying priorities and highlighting both strengths, weaknesses, and a roadmap for continuing improvement.
