Accreditation is a quality assurance method that evaluates and verifies an institution’s quality and encourages continuous improvement. District accreditation is a new and challenging model, and we are only the eighth Catholic school system to earn this designation. It is a protocol for school systems committed to systemic, systematic, and sustainable improvement designed to ensure that an entire system is aligned in the accreditation process.
Our brand is “The Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools.” This system of schools is unified by a common tradition, purpose, and vision, yet our schools are distinctive, proud, and self-governed. In October 2018, AdvancED, an international organization and the parent organization of North Central Association, validated our brand by accrediting our system and, through that process renewing the individual accreditation of each of our 40 schools.
This is good news to be celebrated! It validates the vital education the Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools provides and its commitment to continuous improvement. It also conveys our dedication to the brand promise—confidence that our children will experience complete development and unsurpassed academic and personal success.
