CIS was first awarded the four year EduTrust award in August 2012, and again in 2016. Our EduTrust certificate can be viewed here. Please note that due to COVID19, CPE has extended CIS's EduTrust accreditation to 21 November 2020.
What is EduTrust?
Administered by the Committee for Private Education under the governance of Skills Future Singapore, EduTrust is a voluntary certification scheme that helps to distinguish higher quality educational institutions in Singapore’s private education industry. As a school that is EduTrust certified, we are able to accept international students who require Student Passes from the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).
You can learn more about the Committee for Private Education, the Private Education Act, or the EduTrust Certification Scheme on the Skills future SG website.
Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)
The Canadian International School is fully accredited (Grades 7 to 12) by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges. You can view the CIS WASC accreditation certificate here.
WASC accreditation is awarded to schools that prove they are worthy of the trust placed in them to provide high quality learning opportunities, and clearly demonstrate that self-improvement is an ultimate and ongoing goal. Participating schools must meet rigorous, research-based standards, reflecting the essential elements of a successful educational programme, where a key quality is a continual focus on self improvement.
