Special announcement: Congratulations West Valley Christian School for being granted a six year accreditation term by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
We have not earned a 6 year term for over 12 years!
This is the highest accreditation term offered by WASC. Stanford, UCLA, UC Berkeley, USC, and Pepperdine University are a few names that come to mind when you think about prestigious, highly academic and accomplished universities. Of all the colleges and universities in the Western Region, only 161 have met high standards of quality and effectiveness to become accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). It is one of six regional accrediting associations in the United States that accredits prestigious colleges and universities named above, as well as junior colleges, and K-12 schools.
