PRIVATE SCHOOL FORUM
IPSF and AdvancED have a referral relationship. IPSF members, however, are free to pursue accreditation through other reputable educational accrediting organizations other than AdvancED. Please contact IPSF at firstname.lastname@example.org to provide this information.
- Your application forms to IPSF and AdvancEd will be reviewed separately, and a final decision made as to your membership status with IPSF and/or membership with AdvancED. IPSF and AdvancED have a referral relationship that in no way, directly or indirectly, influences the decisions, processes, or activities of the other body. All decisions as to membership by IPSF and accreditation status by AdvancED are subject to wholly different criteria and processes. Joining IPSF is not a guarantee of AdvancED accreditation or AdvancED status.
- Campuses: A separate application form must be completed for each school campus (please see fee structures) for both IPSF and AdvancED.
- IPSF applications will be considered only after full payment has been received. The funds paid for a denied application will be fully refunded to the applicant with the letter of refusal. IPSF shall collect payment for members who wish to apply to become members of AdvancED as an agent only. Please refer to AdvancED policies and information for full information as to their fee processes and requirements.
- IPSF membership renewal must be submitted with full payment by August 31 of each calendar year. AdvancEd membership renewal must be submitted at the one year anniversary of initial application and as per AdvancED requirements.
