St. Mary School is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and approved by the State of Connecticut.
NEASC provides accreditation services for more than 2000 public and private institutions in the six state region; Pre-K through university. Emanating from high quality standards, NEASC accreditation uses self-reflection, peer review and best practices as integral components of its assessment process and monitors the follow-up endeavors leading to continuous school/program improvement. NEASC consists of six Commissions, each of which sets the standards for a particular segment of the educational community.
The accreditation for St. Mary School is handled by The Commission on Independent Schools, one of four Commissions of NEASC, which accredits a wide range of private non-public schools in the six states of New England. Most recently, our school completed an exhausting Self Study in 2015 which was followed up by a three day visit from a Committee of principals and teachers from other private schools. The end result was that St. Mary’s was accredited for a full ten year term until 2026.
In order to keep the accreditation valid, the school was also required to submit a two and five year report to demonstrate progress toward improvement. These, along with the annual report submitted, were accepted with commendation by the Commission.
