CLARK — Sister Regina Martin, principal of Mother Seton Regional High School in Clark, has received official notification of Middle States Accreditation. The announcement came with several accolades for the Mother Seton community.
The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, a prestigious accrediting organization, voted to award accreditation to Mother Seton Regional High School. The accreditation report states:
“Mother Seton Regional High School has demonstrated that it is effectively advancing the quality of educational experiences it offers its students and meets its responsibilities to the public and the profession of education and complies with standards for accreditation that are established by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.”
The term of accreditation is for seven years, which is the maximum number of years available in the present protocol. The Commission’s policy defines Accreditation as: “An ‘Accredited’ institution is an educational organization that meets all MSA Standards for Accreditation, adheres to applicable MSA policies, and meets the requirements of the self-study protocol used.
Members of the Mother Seton Community were most impressed with the overall validation team’s report. The team indicated that Mother Seton’s vision looks to the future, so that the students are well prepared to meet the challenges that society presents. The school also stresses the Catholic Identity which enables the young women to make decisions based upon Catholic values.
In the conclusion of the report, Dr. Daly, chair of the Validation Team, states the following:
“As a girls’ school, Mother Seton provides young ladies with the opportunities to develop not only academic skills, but also leadership skills that will extend beyond their four year experience at Mother Seton. The curriculum provides the necessary tools to prepare these students, and the mission and philosophy Mother Seton instill in them spiritual and ethical values which will assist them in life. Mother Seton is a busy place between the class activities and the extracurricular activities. The majority of the students said they wanted to attend Mother Seton because they knew that they would get a good education here. The school’s record of academic success attests to that fact.”
Dr. Daly indicated that there is a great esprit de corps at Mother Seton; students consider it their educational and spiritual home. Dr. Daly concluded his report with the following: “There are many good things happening in education, and those things are readily found at Mother Seton Regional High School!”
Sister Regina is most grateful to the entire Mother Seton community for such an outstanding measure of untiring support and sustained enthusiasm. “Heartfelt appreciation is extended to everyone who is a part of our school,” states Sister Regina. “Special congratulations to each parent, student and staff member . Your faith, spirit and success are the foundation of Mother Seton.”
