WASC(Western Association of Schools and Colleges) ?
The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is one of six official academic bodies responsible for the accreditation of public and private universities, colleges, secondary and elementary schools in the United States and foreign institutions of American origin. The Western Association of Schools and Colleges has jurisdiction over the U.S. states of California and Hawaii, its territories of GuamAmerican Samoa and Northern Marianas Islands, in addition to the Federated States of MicronesiaPalau, thePacific RimEast Asia, and areas of the Pacific and East Asia where American schools or colleges may apply to it for service.

Included are elementary, junior high, middle, high and adult schools, whether public, private, or church-related. The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges evaluates and accredits public and private post-secondary institutions that offer two-year education programs and award the associate degree.
