ISACS Accreditation

In 2013, we earned full accreditation from the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS).

This multi-year process included an in-depth self-study report and a visit from a team of educators and administrators from other ISACS schools.

We're proud to be part of ISACS!
