Accreditation

Sacred Heart Catholic School Accredited since 1990 by MNSAA

We are committed to helping all students reach their full potential in a nurturing and safe school.

What does this mean to you?

It means you can rest assured that your students are receiving a quality education.

It means that:

  • Students are taught by qualified teachers.
  • The curriculum is rigorous and integrated with best professional practices.
  • Our school complies with State of Minnesota guidelines for safety and well-being.
  • Oversight is provided by a concerned governing body.

It means that the quality of our educational program is nationally recognized.  It means that we go beyond state requirements and hold ourselves accountable for meeting nationally recognized standards of excellence.

The Minnesota Nonpublic School Accrediting Association (MNSAA) has accredited Sacred Heart Catholic School in Robbinsdale the eligibility period of 2011 to 2018. Accreditation is a voluntary method of quality assurance with a goal to evaluate, validate, and improve each school’s quality.

MNSAA is a federally- and state-sanctioned non-profit association for accrediting nonpublic schools in the State of Minnesota. The Association’s mission is to be a catalyst for enhancing the quality of nonpublic education in Minnesota through a comprehensive process of accreditation. Our agency helps schools provide quality nonpublic education for the children of Minnesota for its member schools. MNSAA is governed by a member-elected Board of Directors that bases its accreditation on a school’s evaluation through a self-study process.

Schools are accredited based on their compliance with a set of rigorous standards which identify essential personnel, instruction, facility, curriculum, governance, and marketing policies and practices that are considered necessary for an effective school. The accreditation process includes the creation of a visionary and focused strategic plan and an on-site visit by a team of educators from member schools. Accreditation with MNSAA relies heavily on how the individual school defines its mission and the way it seeks to accomplish that mission.

MNSAA is pleased to have Sacred Heart Catholic School join some of the more than 170 accredited schools that make up the Association. MNSAA salutes Sacred Heart School’s commitment to providing outstanding education to the children of this community. MNSAA will continue to provide guidance to Sacred Heart Catholic School through an annual review of its strategic plan.
