SEK International School Qatar received their formal accreditation from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) in addition to their IB World School status and authorisation for the PYP, MYP and Diploma Programmes.  A globally-recognised standard of excellence, NEASC Accreditation attests to the high quality and integrity of academic institutions.

Founded in 1885, NEASC is an independent, voluntary, non-profit membership organisation which connects and serves over 2,000 public and independent schools, technical and career institutions, colleges, and universities in New England plus International Schools in more than 65 nations worldwide.

In the final report, the NEASC team expressed their satisfaction with SEK Qatar. The team said they identified many strengths in the balance, processes, polices and procedures, and even in the professional culture that they believe is nurtured by the vision and values of the school.

This unique balance of structure and innovative freedom gives rise to, and supports their identified strengths.’

NEASC has recognised SEK Qatar as an accredited member after having successfully passed its accreditation, which is a thorough objective process of peer review through Self Study and visits from NEASC professionals. The visiting team also commended the school on the warmth and openness of their community and the depth of their engagement in the reflective accreditation process.

The school, while only in its fourth year, already has an outstanding educational programme and environment. The faculty is talented, dedicated, and has formed an effective and cohesive professional community with a shared vision of excellence. The SLT is simultaneously collaborative and supportive, while still setting high standards of professionalism and performance.’

SEK Qatar Principal, Vivian Arif  said they are really proud of this achievement.

It is a validation of the expertise of our school faculty, a testament to the strength of commitment from parents, and the outstanding profile of our talented and globally-minded students. Obtaining NEASC accreditation supports our commitment to rigorous and continuous improvement, and certifies that SEK Qatar students receive a first class education that meets internationally recognised quality standards.’
