Accreditation

Middle States Accredited

The School of Saint Elizabeth is accredited through the Middle States Commission on Elementary Schools (MSCES). This accreditation confirms that the quality of education received by students is in line with the standards set by the Middle States Commission.

The MSCES, which has provided accreditation protocols to schools since 1978, works with numerous private and public elementary schools in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The process of receiving accreditation begins with an extensive self-examination by the school. When this self-evaluation has been completed, the Middle States Commission analyzes the effectiveness of the school and, when it is satisfied that its standards have been met, accreditation is granted.

Follow up reports, which detail a school’s response to specific recommendations made by the Middle States Commission, are required at three-, six- and 10-year intervals after the original accreditation. The School of Saint Elizabeth’s Sixth-Year Report was accepted by the commission on June 7, 2005. This report, which provides more detailed information about our school’s curriculum and goals, may be obtained from the school office.
