What is EduTrust?
Governed by the Committee for Private Education, EduTrust is a voluntary certification scheme that helps to distinguish higher quality educational institutions in Singapore’s private education industry. Only schools that are EduTrust certified are able to accept international students who require Student Passes from the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).
You can learn more about the Committee for Private Education, the Private Education Act, or the EduTrust Certification Scheme on the CPE website.

Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)
The Canadian International School is fully accredited (Grades 9 to 12) by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges. You can view the CIS WASC accreditation certificate here.
WASC accreditation is awarded to schools that prove they are worthy of the trust placed in them to provide high quality learning opportunities, and clearly demonstrate that self-improvement is an ultimate and ongoing goal. Participating schools must meet rigorous, research-based standards, reflecting the essential elements of a successful educational programme, where a key quality is a continual focus on self improvement.
