Wakefield's Road to Accredidation

Wakefield was closely examined by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools (VAIS) over the week of November 12-15, 2010. The process began on Sunday November 12, 2010 with a reception and tour of the campus attended by the entire faculty. The VAIS team, made of independent school administrators and teachers from several disciplines,came to Wakefield's beautiful campus to do more than just to take in the view and look at the classrooms.

Representatives from VAIS sat in every class at least once, to gain a greater understanding of the Wakefield way. The VAIS representatives were on campus until Wednesday, November 15, 2010 meeting with various teachers and heads of the departments to truly soak up what Wakefield stands for.

This is a process that occurs every 10 years and is more than just a rubber stamp. The process gives Wakefield an opportunity to show other independent schools what makes us uniqiue. The visit was a overwhelming success and Wakefield continues to uphold its core values, making it one of the best schools in the state.
