Accredited by NCA through AdvancED

St. Paul American School is proud to be an NCA accredited school. What an NCA accreditation means?

"While accreditation is a set of rigorous protocols and research-based processes for evaluating an institution’s organizational effectiveness, it is far more than that. Today accreditation examines the whole institution—the programs, the cultural context, the community of stakeholders—to determine how well the parts work together to meet the needs of students." http://www.advanc-ed.org/
