WCEA2013Logo 01 1024x638Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA)

The mission of WCEA is to promote quality Catholic education for students in our member elementary and secondary schools through an accrediting process that assures the primacy of faith formation and educational excellence.  The major purpose of this agency is to coordinate the accreditation process by assisting schools in their self-evaluative programs, to establish general standards for excellence, to grant WCEA Accreditation, and to cooperate formally with regional accrediting organizations as determined by the WCEA Board of Directors.

Click here to view the pdfWCEA Fact Sheet.

Saint John the Baptist Elementary was fully accredited by the Western Catholic Education Assocation (WCEA) in March 2018.   The accreditation process involved completing a self-study, which included key aspects: Catholic Identity, School Purpose, Organization for Student Learning, Data Analysis, Schoolwide Learning Expectations and Standards Based Curriculum, Instructional Methodology, Support for Student Growth and Resource Management.  A Visiting Team, made up of educators, assessed the key aspects as follows:

  • HIGHLY EFFECTIVE: The results of the Self Study and the visit provide evidence of (1) the achievement of a high degree of student learning with respect to the Accreditation Factor and (2) a strong operable school improvement process not requiring external monitoring.
  • EFFECTIVE: The results of the Self Study and the visit provide evidence of (1) the achievement of student learning with respect to the Accreditation Factor; and (2) the need for some minimal outside monitoring to support the school improvement process.
  • SOMEWHAT EFFECTIVE: The results of the Self Study and the visit provide limited evidence of (1) the achievement of student learning with respect to the Accreditation Factor and (2) the necessity for outside monitoring to support the school’s improvement.
  • INEFFECTIVE: The results of the Self Study and the visit provide little, if any, evidence of (1) the achievement of student learning with respect to the Accreditation Factor and (2) the necessity for consistent outside monitoring to support the school's improvement process.

Saint John the Baptist Elementary received Highly Effective in all areas.  The critcal goals for the school, as outlined in its self study, are (1) Evaluate and adopt and updated Religion series, (2) Evaluate and adopt an updated English Language Arts series to support high achievement of all learners, (3) Adopt and implmenet Step Up to Writing as directed by the Catholic Schools Office to improve students' writing skills, (4) Provide contintuing professional development opportunities for teachers to understand best practices for analyzing data to drive instructio, including using results from the ACT Aspire and (5) Form a data committee to annually collect, analtze and communicate schoolwide data to drive instruction and meet the needs of all learners.
