Accreditation

Annunciation Catholic School is always seeking the best and most effective ways to educate children for the 21st century, infusing this education with a strong and vital Catholic identity, while supporting parents in their role as the primary educators of their children. To validate our commitment and our accomplishments, ACS will be seeking accreditation through the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA). New schools must complete three years as a full K-8 school before seeking accreditation, which is why we have not been eligible for accreditation prior to this.

The accreditation process begins with a specific Self Study process and Action Plan leading to the accreditation of the school. During the 2017-2018 school year, Annunciation will involve all of its shareholders – faculty, staff, parents, students, and parishioners – in this process using a specific protocol outlined by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA). In the fall of 2018, a Visiting Committee from WCEA will review our Self Study document, including our Action Plan for ongoing improvement, and will determine our accreditation status for the next six years. Throughout the next eighteen months, we will be keeping you informed about this Self Study and Accreditation process. We welcome your support, your feedback, and your prayers for the success of this process. For more information on the accreditation process, visit the WCEA website at http://www.westwcea.org/.
