Accredited Secondary Schools in the United States. Bulletin, 1930, No. 24
Carr, Margaret J. S.
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
Secondary education continues to grow. The number of high-school graduates increases from year to year, and the percentage of these graduates who go to higher institutions is still on the increase. It is imperative that a list of those secondary schools that do a standard quantity and quality of work be accessible to students who wish to do secondary school work and to those institutions to which secondary school graduates apply for admission. The work of inspecting and of approving these secondary schools is done by agents of State departments of education, by representatives of State universities, and by certain regional accrediting associations. Upon six previous occasions the Office of Education has published in bulletin form lists of secondary schools approved by these agencies. This bulletin is a revision of the last compilation made in 1928. This bulletin is divided into two parts. The first part contains lists of schools accredited by State universities and State officers of education. Sometimes both the State university and the State department of education publish lists of accredited schools. When the State department of education or the State university publishes lists of accredited or approved high schools of different grades, only schools of the first grade are included in the bulletin, except in the case of California, Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, and North Dakota. Part II contains the lists of the five principal associations which undertake to accredit schools. The methods or standards of these associations are not identical. The list accredited by each is preceded by a statement of the basis upon which it is compiled. The schools are listed alphabetically, according to the towns in which they are located. Individual sections contain footnotes. [For supplement report, "Accredited Secondary Schools in the United States. Supplement to Bulletin, 1930, No. 24," see ED542095.
