Accreditation Board



Welcome to the official website of the Saint Christopher (St. Kitts) and Nevis Accreditation Board  (SKNAB) 

Historical and contemporary studies have shown that higher education serves as an integral component for an individual’s entry into the modern sectors of national economies. Education is also widely viewed as a universal right, particularly in developing countries. However, developing countries struggle to establish, encourage and increase school enrollment among their youth, particularly at the tertiary education level – where the greatest constriction on enrollment occurs.

As part of its mandate, SKNAB seeks to:

  • Promote the establishment of institutions of high standard
  • Ensure that the Federation’s post secondary and tertiary-level education system maintain or exceed internationally accepted standards for educational quality

The Board aims to provide an educational environment that nurtures successful graduates who can think critically and are competitive in the local, regional, and international world of work.

This website provides access to information about the functions and services of the St. Kitts and Nevis Accreditation Board as well as how to apply for accreditation for an institution and members of SKNAB.
