Accreditation


Accreditation  is  the  affirmation  that  a  school  or  other  educational  institution  is  providing  the  level  of  quality  in  its  educational  programs,  services,  activities,  and/or  resources  expected  by  its  community  of  stakeholders  and  endorsed  by  the  education  world.  When  the  Commissions  on  Elementary  and  Secondary  Schools  (CESS)  accredit  a  school,  they  certify  that  the  school  meets  the  prescribed  standards  of  quality  of  the  Middle  States  Association. 

 To  become  accredited,  or  have  its  accreditation  renewed,  by  the  Middle  States  Association,  a  school  must  demonstrate  that  it  meets  the  appropriate  Standards  for  Accreditation.  Recognizing  the  unique  characteristics  of  schools  and  other  educational  institutions,  the  Middle  States  Commissions  on  Elementary  and  Secondary  Schools  have  adopted  Standards  for  Accreditation  appropriate  for  each  type  of  member  institution: 

 

• Standards  for  Schools  (2014) • Standards  for  School  Systems  • Standards  for  Career  and  Technical  Institutions • Standards  for  Educational  Service  Agencies • Standards  for  Supplementary  Education  Organizations • Standards  for  Learning  Services  Providers 

 

 CCCA  is  also  a  member  of  American  Christian  Education  Association  which  represents  a  large  number  of  Christian  Schools  throughout  the  United  States.
