Serving the Future

ACCREDITATION

 

Columbia Academy is dually accredited by the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. We received notification that we received AA accreditation status for this past school year with the MAIS. We have consistently maintained this highest level of accreditation. Next school year we will be going through a five year review by MAIS and SACS and in addition will be adding accreditation through the Southern Association of Independent Schools. We look forward to meeting the requirements of each of these accrediting bodies and performing the mandated self evaluation in order to promote continued school improvement.  The accreditation efforts demonstrate to our community and stakeholders our commitment to excellence, our openness to external review and feedback, and our desire to be the best we can be on behalf of the students we serve.

 

We have our committees in place and have begun our internal review for our ongoing self-assessment.  Our teachers will be generating surveys for students, parents, and others in the community that have a stake in our school.   The teachers and administrators will be reviewing all aspects of our school system.  They will be compiling their findings for our self-assessment that could lead to changes to improving Columbia Academy.
