Northwest Association of Independent Schools
The Northwest Association of Independent Schools is a voluntary membership organization that promotes high educational quality for its schools through the establishment and advancement of comprehensive accreditation standards. In administering the accreditation process for independent elementary and secondary schools in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming, the Association assists schools with the process of school improvement. We are currently made up of 110 member, candidate, affiliate, subscriber and founder schools. To support schools’ continued improvement, NWAIS provides 20+ professional development workshops, conferences and institutes annually.
