Accreditation & Our School Community
The Catalyst school community is engaged in implementing continuous improvement and quality assurance through internal and external reviews. Our accreditation demonstrates our quest for making excellence a habit; it’s about being the best a school can be on behalf of our students.
On April 30th, 2010, Catalyst High School was awarded the highest level of accreditation after a Quality Assurance Review (QAR) through North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI). Founded in 1895, NCA CASI is a non-governmental, voluntary organization that accredits 27,000 high schools and universities worldwide.
During the review, the QAR team met with school administration, teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members. The team examined the school’s systems and processes in relation to the seven NAC standards.
