Though operating independently since 2018, NEASC and the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) collaborate across the K-16 continuum in ways that serve the interests of our entire membership. Through this ongoing partnership and in collaboration with universities, colleges, and higher education associations across New England, NEASC works closely with our higher education colleagues (NECHE, NEBHE, and NEACAC, among others) to explore opportunities to enhance the value of accreditation in supporting the educational success and college readiness of our students.
For more than 130 years our Annual Conference has been tied to higher education in New England. This year, on December 1 and 2, 2022, our conference features speakers and research from Boston College and Harvard University, as well as a session led by the President of the New England Commission on Higher Education.
Throughout the school year we keep our K-12 community of accredited schools connected to the latest information in admissions and higher education through ongoing webinars including our recent webinar, What’s New in College Admissions?, featuring admissions personnel from colleges and universities across the region.
Connecting and ensuring our students are prepared for post-secondary is a key priority of NEASC membership and accreditation. NEASC Accreditation continues to merit positive consideration in university admissions processes and in funding and consideration for other opportunities such as grants and scholarships.
