Program Accreditation

A program that meets the standards is qualified to identify itself as a HighScope Accredited Program and to operate as a HighScope Demonstration Program in the area(s) in which it received curriculum endorsement (e.g., preschool, elementary). Each HighScope Accredited Program receives a certificate acknowledging its status as a HighScope Accredited Program and a half-price scholarship for one staff member to attend the annual International HighScope Conference.
