Risen Christ School is accredited through the Minnesota Non-Public Schools Accrediting Association (MNSAA).
We believe in the accreditation process because:
- Accreditation represents recognition of the quality of a school program to other educational institutions, prospective families, foundations, legislators, alumni and the general public.
- Accreditation provides outside validation that a school has met certain basic standards, is actively seeking a quality education program and is committed to ongoing improvement.
- Accreditation assures the public that the school program and organization will periodically undergo an intensive self-evaluation by the school community and a review by educators who are not affiliated with the school.
- Accreditation makes a public statement that the school is committed to quality education, is willing to be measured against standards and engage in strategic improvement activities.
After hosting a team of educators from around the state who reviewed the school’s work in February, 2017, the MNSAA Board of Directors voted to extend Risen Christ’s accreditation status into 2023, officially making Risen Christ the only MNSAA-accredited dual immersion school in Minnesota.
Risen Christ has been accredited by MNSAA since its founding in 1993 and engages in an intense process of self-study and planning to maintain its accreditation every seven years. In accrediting the school, MNSAA recognized Risen Christ for its efforts to serve the community and affirmed the school’s mission, leadership, dedicated staff and dual immersion learning environment.
