Accreditation

All St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System campuses are accredited by AdvancED-- the largest community of education professionals in the world. AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site reviews of a variety of educational institutions and systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. 

AdvancED serves 36,000 educational institutions—employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students—across the United States and 70 other nations. AdvancED was formed through a 2006 merger of the Pre-K-12 divisions of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI)—and expanded through the addition of the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) in 2012.

To be accredited, a system must:

  • Meet the AdvancEd Accreditation Standards for Quality School Systems and ensure that all schools meet the AdvancEd Standards for Quality Schools.
  • Engage in continuous improvement.
  • Demonstrate quality assurance through external review.
