Accreditation and Memberships:



Arkansas Nonpublic School Accrediting Association (ANSAA):

The mission of the Arkansas Nonpublic School Accrediting Association, Inc. (ANSAA) is to maintain and enhance the quality of education within our diverse member schools through assessment, accountability, and internal review. Using a process of self-study and professional site visits, ANSAA schools demonstrate compliance with established standards which are designed to support ongoing improvement.




Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS):

Accreditation is a voluntary process of self-evaluation and continuous improvement that reflects compliance with required standards/indicators; involves a self-study; and includes a peer review by educators from outside of the school. Independent schools that seek accreditation through SAIS understand that the process is designed specifically with the school in mind. SAIS accreditation allows the school to tell their story, to set their goals, and to be independent, while still fulfilling the stringent and focused compliance requirements of the SAIS process. SAIS accreditation focuses on the school and it's efforts to fulfill the school’s mission.
