Welcome to the website of the Arkansas Nonpublic School Accrediting
Association. With excellence in education as our goal, ANSAA works
closely with nonpublic schools throughout Arkansas to provide quality
education. Membership allows schools the opportunity to be a part of a
cooperative effort to improve education at the state and local levels.
The accreditation process involves the application of standards through
a self-study and an annual review of the school’s progress.
Accreditation also offers assurance to the school community that the
school is committed to continuous improvement.
We hope you will find the website useful and welcome any suggestions
that would assist you in your quest for quality education. If you need
any assistance, please feel free to contact the ANSAA office. We look
forward to working together to advance educational excellence in the
state of Arkansas.
