As an independent school, accreditation serves as a critical component of how Salisbury Academy demonstrates our effectiveness and ability to Engage Minds and Build Futures. In order to achieve accreditation, our faculty and staff undergo a process that requires Salisbury Academy to commit to continuous school improvement, meet a set of rigorous, research-based standards, and engage in self-evaluation and peer review.
Salisbury Academy is accredited through the Southern Association of Independent Schools, a voluntary organization of independent elementary and secondary schools throughout the Southeastern United States and the Caribbean.
