St. Catherine of Siena Academy is acquiring accreditation from the Michigan Association of Non-public Schools (MANS).
The Michigan Non-Public School Accrediting Association (MNSAA) was founded in 1985 to provide an avenue for a non-public school to develop and maintain high standards of excellence.
Motivated by a desire to provide a recognized agency for the accreditation of non-public schools, the MANS Board of Trustees joined with representatives of other states to form the National Federation of State Non-Public School Accrediting Associations. The charter for that organization was incorporated in the state of Minnesota and received approval in November 1984.
MNSAA is recognized by the College Board for its work in accreditation.
- Quality education is the goal of every education institution
- School improvement is the result of a planned process that responds to the input of students, parents and the community
- All non-public schools need to be involved in a school improvement process
- Non-public schools need to strategically plan for their future. The accreditation process provides an avenue to do so
- All society benefits from a quality education institution
MNSAA is open to Michigan religious, independent or private elementary or secondary schools. To begin the accreditation process, a school must have an established program for a minimum of three complete school years.
St. Catherine of Siena Academy expects to have completed the accreditation process by 2013/2014 school year.
In addition to the MANS accreditation, St. Catherine's is also seeking accreditation with The National Association of Private Catholic and Independent Schools.
