Southern Association of Colleges and Schools through AdvancED
St. Louis School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools through AdvancED. While the school is expected to assess continually its progress in maintaining standards, the formal reaccreditation process occurs every seven years.
St. Louis School most recently renewed its accreditation during the 2007-2008 school year through a process of strategic planning entitled Renewing the Vision. Our strategic plan reflects community-wide input from students, parents, faculty, staff, and parishioners and includes strategic initiatives as well as specific action plans for achieving each initiative. The first initiative seeks to enhance the integration between the school and the parish as a means of fostering in each student a Catholic identity as an active believer and participating member of the church. The second strategic initiative speaks to improving student performance on the Stanford 10 standardized test by developing instructional and assessment programs that meet the various learning styles and special needs of the students. The third initiative focuses on institutional advancement by developing an advancement and enrollment management plan that addresses admissions, marketing, communications, and fundraising. On a continuing basis, the school strives for excellence in its service to our students and to our community as it implements the strategic plan and assesses its progress in bringing to life our dynamic, renewed vision.
