An overview of AdvancED accreditation and the School Improvement Plan


The Archdiocese of Indianapolis takes part in AdvancED accreditation. What is AdvancED Accreditation? "A voluntary method of quality assurance developed more than 100 years ago by American universities and secondary schools and designed primarily to distinguish institutions adhering to a set of educational standards and policies"

The accreditation process is tailored for our Catholic schools. One part of the plan is setting goals in three areas: 1) Catholic Identity, 2) Academics, and 3) Institutional Advancement. I would like to talk about the process of setting the goals. Please, note that the goals and interventions are in the preliminary stage.

President Joe Therber and I have been putting together a school improvement plan (SIP) team of 15 people, including the two of us. The makeup of our committee includes the following categories: teachers, finance and operations, advancement, facilities, guidance, campus ministry, technology and curriculum development, academic success, president, principal, administrative assistant, parent, and student. President Therber and I will chair the Institutional Advancement committee. The chairpersons for the other goals are Catholic Identity, Ms. Amy Noser; Academics, and Mrs. Amy Fix.

Over the next several weeks, I’ll use the Principal’s Blog in The Weekly e-newsletter to provide you with more information about each of the goals and the interventions.

Have a great weekend,

Joseph Brettnacher, Ph.D.
