for Private School Accreditation
A Consortium of Accrediting Associations for the Recognition of
Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Private Schools
Serving as a national review panel for the standards and review
procedures of private school accrediting associations.
Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation (WRISA) is a
nonprofit organization formed in 1991 by the Wisconsin Council of
Religious and Independent Schools to provide non-public schools
with an ongoing school improvement process.
WRISA's three phase accreditation process provides school
communities with the opportunity to explore every aspect of their
school program, receive valuable feedback from a team of impartial
professional educators, and develop a long range plan using the
WRISA framework. Once accredited, schools file an annual report
documenting that they are in compliance with the WRISA Standards
and that they have made progress on their long range plan.
WRISA is a state chapter of the National Federation of Nonpublic
School State Accrediting Associations which is recognized by the
College Board and the Office of Non-Public Education, an office
within the U. S. Department of Education.
Evangelical Lutheran Synod School Accreditation has established
the standards for accrediting our school. These standards and the
WELSSA Commission have been formally recognized and approved by the
National Council for Private School Accreditation. NCPSA has
established accreditation procedures to facilitate the appropriate
application, review, and recognition of qualified and credible
accrediting associations serving private schools.
