Our Accreditations

Western Catholic Education Association Accreditation (WCEA)

St. Nicholas is also accredited by the Western Catholic Education Accreditation.  WCEA promotes quality Catholic education for students in our member elementary and secondary schools through an accrediting process that assures the primacy of faith formation and educational excellence.

Western Association Of Schools And Colleges Accreditation (WASC)

St. Nicholas earns the highest level of accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  We concentrate on school improvement, academic excellence and global citizenship which meets WASC criteria.

WASC accreditation shows a strong correlation to existing student achievement results and growth and current programmatic and operational actions based on the WASC criteria and accreditation term factors as noted in the content of the visiting committee report and the term recommendation of the visiting committee.  

For more information on WASC and the commissions’ accreditation process, visit www.acswasc.org.

A National Blue Ribbon School
