Accreditation is a framework/approach to improve the quality of an educational institution along the different facets of its operations through self-survey and validation of an independent external/third party evaluator.

The focus of the evaluation covers a comprehensive ground, i.e., nine (9) areas starting from the philosophy, vision and mission, in the context of which, the other aspects of operations of a school are evaluated such as faculty, instruction, library, laboratories, physical plant and facilities, student personnel services, social orientation and community involvement and organization and administration.

Each of the areas contain numerous criteria/attributes of an ideal school. Thus, if an institution is able to comply with all the requirements enumerated under the aforementioned nine areas, it will achieve a level of excellence that cannot be found in a school that did not undergo this evaluation process.

Rizal believed that the school is a book where the future of society can be seen. Therefore, if we have quality schools then we will have a better society. The more number of accredited schools would mean a better quality society.
