SACS CASI, an accrediting division for AdvancED, assists schools and school systems through the accreditation process and helps those institutions demonstrate a continuous commitment to providing quality education programs that are aimed at improving student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet AdvancED’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement. 

“We are proud of our tradition of accreditation,” stated Julie Wright, Head of School. “It demonstrates to parents and our community that we are dedicated to providing students with a quality education in a Christian environment and that we are open to external scrutiny. It assures them that we are focused on improving learning for all students.”
