As was mentioned in the , principal Lynne Brennan announced that the school has recieved dual accreditation.
On March 7, the school was granted full accreditation for grades Pre-K through 12 with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). On May 31, word was received that New Testament Christian School was granted a full term of accreditation by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
Accreditation is not a matter of a school simply paying a fee to join an organization, and it is not permanent. A school must demonstrate during a regular review process that it has continually developed and grown, not just maintained the status quo.
The accreditation process is a lengthy one. New Testament began with an extensive self-study of each grade level during the 2010-2011 school year. The standards included the school’s mission, governance, enrollment, resources and more.
Accreditation is important to any institution because it implies ongoing development and adherence to established standards. It provides assurance of New Testament Christian School’s commitment to ongoing improvement on behalf of its students as noted within the mission of the school:
New Testament Christian School seeks to both educate and equip its students for continued growth in a dynamic relationship with Christ through the nurture and provision of a wholesome Christian environment, the teaching of a dedicated Christian faculty, and a commitment to high academic standards built upon the foundation of Biblical truth, and thus empower them to become Christ’s representatives in every aspect of society.
Openings for student admission are still available for the upcoming school year. To schedule a tour, or request an information packet,call 508-285-9771, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.newtestamentschool.org.
