For over 130 years, MSA-CESS has been helping school leaders establish and reach their goals, develop strategic plans, promote staff development, and advance student achievement. The institution accredits preK-12 public, private, parochial, and charter schools as well as non-degree granting career and technical post-secondary institutions and learning services providers. Receiving accreditation is a multifaceted evaluation process that schools and school systems voluntarily use to demonstrate they are meeting a defined set of research-based performance standards.
“This reaccreditation reflects VHS Learning’s commitment to supporting its school community. Accreditation by MSA-CESS is a validation of the dedication and expertise that our faculty and staff have in teaching and learning best practices,” said Carol DeFuria, President & CEO of VHS Learning. “Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools accreditation is the gold standard for measuring and advancing school improvement, and our reaccreditation shows that VHS Learning is committed to excellence and continuous improvement.”
As part of the reaccreditation process, VHS Learning conducted a self-study before the peer review team’s evaluation. That self-study involved input from the nonprofit’s leaders, teachers, parents, and students. “Collaborating with Middle States gives us valuable independent feedback on how well our program is meeting research-based performance standards,” DeFuria continued. “Our work with Middle States helps us evolve and adapt to meet the changing needs of our students and schools.”
