Seeking accreditation for your grassroots microschool? Meridian Learning offers three tiers of professional accreditation. The first tier outlines your school’s commitment to elevating the grassroots microschool model by adhering to characteristics listed here. Second tier accreditation invites a more collaborative effort among your community of learners, teachers and/or administrative staff. Microschools seeking third tier accreditation will engage in a multi-month process including a professional peer review, which culminates with an accreditation summary.
Each accreditation is a customized offering. Once we receive the completed application, we will contact you to confirm the tier most appropriate for your school. The typical accreditation takes between 1 and 3 months after submitting all requested documents and information. Please note that accreditation is available to Galaxy and Constellation level members only. Explore membership options here.
How We’re Exceptional
Our commitment to advancing the grassroots microschool movement led us to design a meaningful pathway for microschools seeking recognition for their dedication to the learning community they serve and intentional action to build and maintain that community. As the first resource and advocacy organization for grassroots microschools in the country, and the first organization to launch a grassroots microschool network, our experience is unmatched. In our work with dozens of aspiring, new and veteran microschool leaders, as well as starting and sustaining our own grassroots micro lab schools for more than 15 years, we’ve learned what it takes to build a microschool not only rooted in meaningful learning but also one that stands the test of time. We look forward to guiding you on your journey to professional accreditation.
