Elevo is pleased to announce that their program curriculum has been granted accreditation status by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The announcement was made after Elevo completed a detailed program report and hosted an initial visit by fellow educators to examine the program in relation to student learning and well-being based on the WASC criteria. The resulting initial visiting report that was reviewed by the WASC Commission summarized program-wide strengths and growth areas for continuous improvement. This is a critical first step in Elevo’s continuous improvement journey that involves all stakeholders in a deeper analysis of its program based on the WASC criteria through the self-study/visit process.

Elevo’s mission is to transform the well-being of students so they look forward to coming to school. Elevo works hand-in-hand with schools to nurture the next generation with a full range of SEL-infused programs. Their WASC-accredited curriculum is designed to promote social-emotional learning through physical well-being and a range of enrichment activities. Their programs provide opportunities to learn, move, and thrive together beyond classroom walls. Through the support and training of their staff, their coaches confidently lead children in fun and engaging activities that are designed to create opportunities for learning while developing essential life skills.

WASC accreditation validates the integrity of a program’s curriculum and transcripts, and assures a community that the program’s goals are appropriate and being accomplished through a viable education system. Furthermore, WASC accreditation is a certification to the public that the program 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.

Through the WASC ongoing accreditation cycle, the program 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 program-wide action plan.
