School Accreditation

School Accreditation

St. Timothy’s Christian Academy is currently accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

What does Accreditation Mean?

Accreditation certifies that an institution meets established standards and is achieving stated objectives. WASC is one of six regional associations in the United States with the authority to grant institutional accreditation. Prior to an on-site evaluation by an accreditation team, the school completes a comprehensive self-study.

All diplomas, degree programs and educational activities offered by the institution are covered by the institution’s accreditation.

Why Is Accreditation Important?

  • Mission and goals focused on students;
  • A collaboratively-developed improvement plan that includes methods for measuring student progress and involves key school stakeholders;
  • An effective framework that integrates all types of school planning and evaluation requirements;
  • Qualified administrative, instructional, and support staff;
  • A climate that promotes learning;
  • Accountability and value for dollars spent;
  • Recognition as an accredited school in a registry available throughout the world.
