LANCASTER, PA — Veritas Scholars Academy, a global classical Christian education program and curriculum provider for kindergarten through twelfth grades, announced it has earned re-accreditation by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA)—a worldwide leader in accreditation and continuous school improvement.
“Veritas upholds its mission with unwavering commitment—and to substantiate this dedication we committed to the extensive process of continued MSA accreditation. This is a significant recognition and validation of the work we do as educators,” said Dr. Bob Cannon, Headmaster of Veritas Scholars Academy. “The achievement showcases our pursuit of excellence for our school community, as well as the dedication of our teachers, academic advisors, staff and alumni.”
MSA is one of the most recognized school accreditation agencies in the world among educators. MSA accreditation can be earned by qualifying public, private and faith-based schools in more than 100 countries around the globe. Accreditation involves a multifaceted evaluation process where schools and school systems demonstrate meeting a defined set of research-based performance standards.
The Middle States Standards for Accreditation are: mission; governance and leadership; school improvement planning; finances; facilities; school organization and staff; health and safety; educational program; assessment and evidence of student learning; student services; student life and activities; and information resources.
“The MSA accreditation is a vital part of our strategic plan for the future, rooted in continuous improvement.” said Laurie Detweiler, EVP and Founder of Veritas. “It is a formal acknowledgement of our school’s dedication to collaboration, growth and the advancement of student achievement.”
MSA re-accreditation has been awarded to Veritas using the Excellence by Design protocol for the longest term available of seven years. This self-study and accreditation protocol serves as a framework for using strategic planning to establish objectives for both student performance and the school’s ability to facilitate growth.
