Accreditation & Awards


isacs_accreditedmemberschoolcolorAs an independent school, Emerson creates its own curriculum to challenge and educate our students. We are not bound to standardized curriculums and mandates, eliminating any pressure to “teach to the test.” But to ensure Emerson continues to be an exceptional school, we have been independently evaluated and accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) since 1991.
