The Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation (WRISA) has announced the accreditation of St. John Vianney School. St. John Vianney has proven compliance with the WRISA educations stardards and is a member in good standing.
"We applaud the accomplishments of the St. John Vianney School community and its commitment to ongoing school improvement and high standards of excellence," remarked Beatrice Weiland, WRISA’s executive director.
"All religious and independent schools in Wisconsin that have been in operation with students for at least two years and meet extensive eligibility criteria may apply to WRISA for entry into the accreditation process," said Weiland. Schools must complete and implement a Long Range Plan for school improvement. Schools that are accredited enter a seven year cycle. During that time they submit Annual Reports to the Board of Directors that detail their progress in meeting their yearly goals.
In the sixth year of their cycle schools conduct a new Self Study. This is followed by another Site Visit and the submittal of a new Visiting Team Report and Long Range Plan to the WRISA Board of Directors in the seventh year.
