The board of directors of the Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation (WRISA) has announced the accreditation of St. Mary School of Luxemburg.
The announcement means St. Mary School has proven its compliance with WRISA educational standards and is a member in good standing.
"We applaud the accomplishments of St. Mary School and its commitment to ongoing school improvement and high standards of excellence," said Beatrice Weiland, executive director of WRISA. "All religious and independent schools in Wisconsin that have been in operation with students for at least two years and meet extensive eligibility criteria may apply to WRISA for entry into the accreditation process."
Schools must complete a yearlong self-study, host a site visit by a team of peers, and develop and implement a long-range plan for school improvement.
Schools that are accredited enter a seven-year cycle. During that time they submit annual reports to the WRISA board that detail progress in meeting their yearly goals. In the sixth year of their cycle, schools conduct a new self-study. This is followed by another site visit and the submittal of a new visiting team report and long-range plan to the WRISA board in the seventh year.
