St. Joseph School is accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Our next self-evaluation will take place in the 2021-2022 school year.
These Protocols implemented with the self-evaluation is criteria-based and lead the school to do a comprehensive examination of data/evidence related to the areas of:
- Catholic Identity
- Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment
- Support Services
- Resources (Enrollment, Finance, Development)
Once the school has reflected on its data and determined its strengths and areas of growth related to the criteria, the most important phase of the process begins: the development of a schoolwide Action Plan. This Action Plan serves as the guide for the school as it moves forward with the school improvement process. A guiding principle of WCEA accreditation is that the school is committed to continuous school improvement focused on high achievement for all students.
The school community then prepares for a visit by a Visiting Committee composed of educators who are trained evaluators from other schools with educational expertise.
Below is our latest WCEA/WASC review.
