St. Anthony of Padua is fully accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA), having completed our initial WCEA school visit on November 5, 2020.
Areas assessed include: involvement of shareholders, assessment of the school’s Catholic identity, defining the school’s purpose, data analysis and use, acceptable progress by all students, curriculum and instruction, support for student spiritual and academic growth, resource management and development, and the capacity to implement and monitor an action plan.
At St. Anthony of Padua, we believe that continuing evaluation and improvement of the curriculum is essential to the development of an effective educational program that promotes a lifelong love of learning. The accreditation process is more than a stamp of approval or quality assurance. It is a collaborative results-oriented school improvement process that serves as the underpinning of an effective school.
