Cathedral Preparatory School and Seminary Earns AdvancED Accreditation
(Elmhurst, NY– 5/4/-2017) – Principal Richie Diaz announced today that Cathedral Preparatory School and Seminary earned accreditation from AdvancED. This action was taken at the AdvancED Accreditation Commission meeting held in Elmhurst, NY on May 4, 2017.
AdvancED provides nationally-recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet AdvancED high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement.
“Accreditation demonstrates to our students, parents and community that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation staffed by highly qualified educators,” stated Principal Richie Diaz.
AdvancED accreditation is recognized across state lines, which not only eases the transfer process as students move from accredited school to accredited school but also assures parents that the school is meeting nationally accepted standards for quality and successful professional practice.
Dr. Mark Elgart, President/CEO of AdvancED, “AdvancED Accreditation is a rigorous process that focuses the entire school on the primary goal of creating lifelong learners. Cathedral Preparatory School and Seminary is to be commended for engaging in this process and demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement.”
