Welcome to the Saint John Vianney High School’s
Middle States Accreditation for Growth(AFG) webpage
The Saint John Vianney High School community is preparing for the upcoming Middle States visitation in November of 2012. The mission of the Middle States Commission on Secondary Schools is as follows:
The Middle States Commission on Secondary School (MSCSS), the premier American Regional accreditation agency, is the leader in ensuring that all students in its region receive the highest quality of education and achieve at levels expected by society. Through its accreditation and school improvement services, MSCSS recognizes excellence in educational quality, planning, and growth in student performance, providing the means by which schools can meet rigorous educational standards.
As Saint John Vianney High School’s current accreditation will expire in 2014, the process of reaccreditation has commenced. Since last school year, students, faculty, and parents have been involved in the planning of our vision and mission for the MSCSS’s Accreditation for Growth review. The AFG Planning Team, which consists of students, parents, teachers, and administrators, has begun the process for completing Saint John Vianney High School’s self-study year, an important component of the reaccreditation procedure.
The reaccreditation process takes place every seven years and involves two stages of evaluation: a campus-wide self-study and an on-sight evaluation by a team of experts from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The reaccreditation process is an opportunity to assess the extent to which we are accomplishing the shared vision of our institution and serves as a point of departure for charting the course of Saint John Vianney High School.
