CLARK — St. John the Apostle School in Clark announced its recent re-accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSCESSA). This recognition was announced following the Commissions’ March 2012 meeting. St. John the Apostle School was one of approximately 200 schools honored.
St. John the Apostle School has been accredited by the MSCESSA for the third time. This accreditation signifies that the educational community of St. John the Apostle School has engaged in a rigorous process of developing self-knowledge; has hosted an evaluation team of independently-appointed educators; and has created an on-going Strategic Plan to move school improvement forward.
This 16-month-long process was governed by the Steering Committee, co-chaired by MaryAnn Chopey and Susan Luciano. Many members of the St. John the Apostle community including the pastor, priests, faculty, school boards, parents and the students themselves joined in the process of self-evaluation.
Currently celebrating its 60th year, St. John the Apostle School was awarded the National Blue Ribbon Award of Academic Excellence in November 2011 in Washington, D.C. Sr. Donna Marie O’Brien, principal of the school for over 25 years, has been a driving force in the school’s academic success.
