Members of the SAES (Southern Association of Episcopal Schools) and SAIS (Southern Association of Independent Schools) concluded a successful site visit to Episcopal last Monday and Tuesday as a part of the re-accreditation process. Both groups will recommend that Episcopal receive accreditation from their respective organizations.
The reaccreditation process gives the Episcopal community a “view from the outside,” by bringing in experienced independent and Episcopal school educators from all over the country. Their primary purpose is to verify that we are living out our Mission and Ministry and generally, “doing what we say we do.” The final accreditation report will consist of commendations and suggestions to aid in our continual improvement process. Our accreditation also serves Episcopal on the state level, allowing us to grant Louisiana state diplomas.
The visiting teams were appreciative of the warm hospitality provided by parents, teachers, staff, and administrators on the campus. We look forward to receiving the finalized report in the future.
Many thanks to Dr. Jewel Reuter for organizing the school report and leading a seamless reaccreditation process!
