Yorktown High School Recognized for 50 Years of Accreditation
Yorktown High School was recognized by AdvancED for 50 years of continuous SACS CASI accreditation. AdvancED is the parent company of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement.
To earn accreditation, schools must meet AdvancED’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement.
AdvancED assists schools and districts through the accreditation process and helps those institutions demonstrate a continuous commitment to providing quality education programs that are aimed at improving student performance.
Yorktown was recognized at the AdvancED SACS CASI conference in Williamsburg at the end of February.
Arlington Public Schools has also earned district-level SACS CASI accreditation.
