Dover American International School was initially accredited on April 19th 2011 by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA, CASI, AdvancED) and valid through June 30, 2016. Institutions seeking to gain or retain accreditation by AdvancED must meet AdvancED standards. These standards focus on systems within a school and systematic methods of attaining high student performance and organizational effectiveness. The standards address preparing students with skills they will need for the future and include high expectations for professional practice. The standards require demonstrated growth in student learning and achievement; a commitment to developing learning, thinking and life skills for all students; and formal structures whereby each student is well known.
On January 28, 2016, DAIS was approved for 5 more years of accreditation with AdvancED. Our accreditation status will be valid until June, 2021. AdvancED is a world leader in accreditation and school improvement. AdvancED works with over 32,000 institutions in more than 70 countries serving 20 million students.
