Mary, Star of the Sea School’s accreditation visit from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) took place during the week of Feb 24-28,2020. WASC is a world-renowned accrediting association and one of the six regional accrediting agencies in the United States.
The accreditation process encourages school improvement through a process of continuing evaluation and recognizes by accreditation, schools that meet an acceptable level of quality in accordance with established criteria.
It is with absolute pleasure to inform you that our WASC Accreditation visit was a great success! Although the “rubber stamp” for the maximum term of accreditation will not be disclosed until June/July 2020, I am so honored to announce that MSOS was recognized by the visiting committee to have a “dynamic energy that promotes individual student academic, social, and spiritual growth. “
The visiting team commended us on our beautiful campus life – from our supportive pastor and parish to our dedicated and competent faculty and staff, committed parents and eager students. Attached is an image that they created that highlights their observations of our campus.
Of course, our work is never over. As we move ahead, I look forward to propelling our school to even more effectively make each child’s faith enriched learning journey meaningful and rewarding. Let’s keep encouraging our students to shoot for the STARS!
