Accredited Secondary Schools in the United States. Bulletin, 1922, No. 11
Zook, George F.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The lists of accredited secondary schools which are presented now for the fourth time in this bulletin are designed to meet the needs of officers charged with the admission of new students to secondary schools, colleges, universities, professional schools, especially schools of law and medicine, normal schools, etc.; of State examining and certifying boards, which are concerned with the status of secondary schools located at a distance; and of parents who may want to know about the high schools of any particular State or section. The lists presented here show many changes in the way of schools added to or dropped from previous lists. The accrediting agencies represented, however, remain the same, except that, because of the almost universal practice of the State accrediting bodies in extending their inspection and accrediting of secondary schools to cover private as well as public schools, Part III of the preceding bulletin, containing the accredited lists of certain private institutions, has been omitted. Following the letter of transmittal, the following are included in this bulletin: (1) Accredited secondary school defined; (2) Unit defined; (3) Variations in requirements of accrediting agencies; (4) Methods of accrediting; (5) State lists; (6) Lists of schools accredited by various associations. (Contains 28 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
