BVIS HCMC Receives WASC Accreditation

We are pleased to announce that BVIS HCMC has been granted accreditation status by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

The announcement was made after the school successfully completed a joint Preparatory Evaluation visit with CIS, to evaluate the school’s educational mission, vision and values, its quality of learning and student outcomes and the overall pastoral care in relation to WASC membership criteria. The final report from the WASC Accreditation Committee highlighted the many strengths of the school whilst also including their recommendations for future improvement. The school is now undergoing a further detailed self-evaluation process in preparation for a joint CIS and WASC team visit that is scheduled for March 2022.  

BVIS accedited by WASC

Mr Simon Higham, Principal shared, “It is incredibly important for all premium schools to take part in an accreditation process, to both validate their own perceptions of the school, whilst also undertaking a thorough self-evaluation of all aspects of learning, teaching and administrative processes.  We are delighted to be accredited by WASC. 

WASC accreditation validates the integrity of a school’s program and transcripts and assures a community that the school’s goals are appropriate and being accomplished through a viable education program. Furthermore, WASC accreditation is a certification to the public that the school is a trustworthy institution of learning and well-being that is committed to continuous improvement and high-quality learning and well-being for all students.   

The visiting committee stated in it’s report:

The strengths of the school are many. The school's purpose and direction is a major driver in strategic planning and decision-making, with the focus on BVIS HCMC being a bilingual international school with a clear mission to produce internationally-qualified, fully-bilingual students, who are global citizens but with a Vietnamese perspective

The BVIS curriculum is at very high standard and WASC’s accreditation means graduation certificates from BVIS will now carry their recognition of this. BVIS will continue to offer A level courses and we are also planning to broaden the range of courses available beyond this in the next few years. These will lead to a BVIS High School Diploma which is now accredited by WASC in the same way as any school in the USA. 

Through the WASC ongoing accreditation cycle, BVIS HCMC conducts an in-depth self-study, normally every five or six years, hosts a visit by fellow educators and engages all stakeholders in a follow-up process of implementing, monitoring, and refining the resulting school wide action plan.
