Sacred Heart Catholic School earns accreditation

Sacred Heart Catholic School in Shawano learned late last year that it received accreditation by the Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation. Earning the certificate of accreditation for the 2017-18 school year means the school has been an accredited institution for over 20 years.

“We applaud the accomplishments of the Sacred Heart Catholic School community and its commitment to ongoing school improvement and high standards of excellence,” said Beatrice Weiland, executive director of the accrediting organization.

To be a school in good standing, educators must complete a comprehensive self study and undergo a peer visit to validate compliance with the accreditation team’s standards. Sacred Heart Principal Aleta Young and the Rev. Tom Farrell worked with school leadership to develop a long-range plan to meet their improvement goals. The accreditation board of directors announced in November that the school earned its accreditation certificate for this school year.
