The accreditation team representing ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) and MSA (Middle States Association) arrived on Monday night, this week. They were in school through until Friday looking at lessons, examining paperwork and meeting with administrators, teachers, parents and students to see whether we have met the standards necessary to become an accredited school.
On Friday afternoon (after the President's visit - more on that another time) they presented their initial findings to the school. We have been recommended for full accreditation by both ACSI and MSA. This recommendation will go to the boards of both organisations within the next few months to be ratified.
It has been the culmination of years of work by the teachers and leaders of the school. I have been privileged to be part of the team that has put together the school improvement program that gained us accreditation while also physically moving the school twice in the last 9 months. This team was clearly brought together for such a time as this. Well done everybody!
