WASC Accreditation

Urban Discovery Academy is proud to be fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The WASC accreditation process is a comprehensive self-study process to help schools thoroughly evaluate programs and processes to ensure rigorous student learning.
UDA completed the full self-study process in 2015, with participation from parents, students, staff, Board members and school partners, resulting in the 2015 WASC Self Study document below. Following the visit, we revised our long-term action plan help shape our school-wide growth over the next several years; the action plan is attached. In 2017, 2018, and 2019 UDA/IDEATE went through the substantive change process with WASC, to add high school grades to our accreditation status. In 2019, we completed our one-day Mid Cycle Visit; the school's report and the Visiting Committee Report are posted below. UDA/IDEATE comprise our Urban Discovery Schools from Transitional Kindergarten through 12th Grade.
