Throughout the evaluation process, members of the Serra community evaluated the needs of the school and created a plan to improve the school. The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools utilized the Accreditation for Growth as the protocol for assessing the planning process of The Plan for Growth and Improvement of the school.
Because Serra is a Catholic school, the Serra community must also meet the protocol of Validating the Vision, Part II, to receive reaccreditation. The faculty and staff worked to help Serra meet the standards set forth by the Middle States Association of Colleges and schools, as well as identified and committed to a plan for growth in student performance.
Serra Catholic earned its reaccreditation in March of 2010 and is now able to continue moving forward and meeting the needs of its students. The assessment of educational growth and improvement provides the school and community the opportunity to see the evidence of constant self-evaluation. The Plan for Growth and Improvement at Serra Catholic High School provided opportunities to examine the needs of the school, guarantee continuity, administer change, establish priorities, and institute a plan for improving the school.
