NEASC is headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts.[2] NEASC focuses on improving education systems and often times partners with other schools or organizations to do so. This can be seen on their twitter page as they tend to post updates semi-regularly. Often times they apply the most successful teaching and learning methods to ensure that students learn and education gets more advanced as a whole.[3]
