Accreditation

As you know, our school is accredited by AdvancEd (formerly known as Southern Association of Colleges and Schools). Every five years, schools are required to be re-accredited, and this is our year! We will have a team from AdvancEd here next week to visit and assess our school. I wanted to make you all aware in case you saw people that you do not know walking through the schools.
