We are pleased to share that Logos Academy has received official approval for accreditation from the well respected Middle States Association. This is a major milestone which speaks to the quality of the program, the integrity of the organizational structure, and the weight that a diploma from the school carries.
Working toward accreditation is no small project. Over the course of two years an extensive self-study was completed about virtually every aspect of the school. This included refining policies, improving curriculum, assessing instruction and, reviewing mission documents. Hundreds of pages of reporting and evidence documents were compiled and submitted in preparation for a visit by the Accreditation Review Committee. For several days these highly qualified individuals visited classrooms, reviewed business practices, and interviewed key stakeholders (parents, students, teachers, staff, and donors). Overall, the goal is to assess the integrity of the institution and to verify that it is accomplishing its mission to serve students. Following the initial review, of Logos Academy the Middle States committee shared a report that was read to the complete staff:
“Many schools claim to change lives; clearly Logos does change lives.” – Middle States Association Committee Oral Report
Accreditation terms are seven years with a midpoint review every three years. Logos Academy is an urban, Kingdom school grounded in the love of Christ, that educates for excellence, offers opportunity, and cultivates hope in our community.
