The Ukiah Independent Study Academy (UISA) participates in an accreditation process developed by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The six-year accreditation cycle involves two parts: the school conducting an extensive 18-month reflective self-study into 5 specific areas (school governance, curriculum, instruction, assessment/accountability, and school culture), and periodic visits from a WASC Visiting Committee. 


As a result of the WASC visit in 2017, Ukiah Independent Study Academy was awarded a six-year accreditation status through June 30, 2023, with a mid-year cycle visit.
