TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) has awarded accreditation to Clever Minds Educational Services in Truckee.

Accreditation by WASC allows students to take high school courses for credit at Clever Minds Educational Services. Designated by WASC as a supplementary education program, Clever Minds Educational Services offers students another option for instruction while staying enrolled in high school.

“With our WASC accreditation, students have a new way to achieve their academic goals,” said Vicki Isacowitz, program director at Clever Minds Educational Services. “Clever Minds Educational Services has always offered students individualized instruction. As a supplementary education program, our students can earn high school credits while learning at our center.”

This summer marks the first time students are eligible to earn high school credit for coursework in math at Clever Minds Educational Services. Students can get ahead or catch up so they may continue with course progression when they return to school at summer’s end.

The WASC-accredited summer school at Clever Minds Educational Services meets June 24 to Aug. 22, 2013 for two hours per day, Monday through Thursday. The student-teacher ratio is 5:1.
