Middle States’ Response to Covid-19 Pandemic

In response to continued school closures and the projected timelines for resuming normal travel and school operations, we have deemed it necessary to postpone all previously scheduled accreditation visits through May. All schools and volunteers impacted by this decision have been contacted directly.

All previously scheduled onsite workshops have been moved to an online format. A full list of upcoming self study workshops can be found (here). A full list of accreditation volunteer trainings can be found here.

In addition, we held our first two MSAConnects open forum town halls for our school leaders to share their experience, advice, and concerns. Nearly 200 school leaders from around the world participated.

One of the main themes that emerged from the meetings was the importance of communication. It may sound like a simple theme, but whether it be disseminating information, supporting positive mental health, instructing online or providing social connections and outlets – quality education has never been more important.

We will be offering additional forums for sharing and additional resources based on these initial discussions. We will post and share details as soon as they are available. We are also continually updating our library of resources for online learning on our website.

Please reach out directly to your accreditation liaison or any member of our staff for any questions that arise or support you need. You can also always reach us at
