Accreditation

Lutheran schools exist to share the good news of Jesus Christ through a warm, caring environment and an excellent academic program. Accreditation guides the school through a process of self-study in order to identify what the school already does well and what it can do to become even better. Accreditation identifies a school as one committed toward fostering excellence in education. Accreditation encourages school improvement through a process of continual self study. Accreditation assures a school and its community that the school has clearly defined goals and a plan to accomplish these goals.

More and more schools in our district are becoming involved in the accreditation process. At the present time our district accredited schools include:

     100% of the high schools
     67% of the elementary schools
     40% of the early childhood centers.
