Accreditation


The Franciscan School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation. TFS is approved by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Raleigh and is a member of the National Catholic Educational Association. Additionally, TFS complies with the North Carolina Guidelines for Non-Public Schools.

The National Study of School Evaluation (NSSE) suggests that accreditation helps to focus a school's attention on the critical attributes of schools of quality, attributes that are grounded in the research on high-performing systems of teaching and learning and; provides a meaningful and mangeable tool for schools to assess the quality of their work, assessment that promotes thoughtful reflection and stimulates purposeful action to the end of improving student learning.

With that goal in mind, TFS constantly focuses on "the critical attributes of schools of quality" and uses meaningful tools" to assess the quality of [our] work to the end of imporoving student learning" in every area of SACS quality assurance:  Educational Improvement; Beliefs and Mission; Governance and Leadership; Finances and Resources; Human Resources; Support for Student Learning; Library and Media Services; Facilities; Communication and Community Relationships; Curriculum and Instructional Design; Citizenship and Conduct, and; Assessment Measurement, and Effective Results.

Self-evaluation and re-accreditation by others helps us to see ourselves, to celebrate our strengths, and to embrace a five-year roadmap for ongoing school improvement as we seek to cement TFS's place as a K - 8 Catholic school exemplar.
