Ichthus Accreditation 2015
Praise the Lord, for we have some great news today.
Since 2011, we have been working to receive international accreditation from two organizations: the Commission on Accreditation for International Schools of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), based in Colorado Springs, and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), based in California.
For the past four years, WASC and ACSI have sent consultants and veteran educators to Ichthus to coach and advise our teachers, principals, and administration. With their assistance, your teachers and principals have tirelessly worked to improve their skills and the curriculum to meet the high standards mandated by these international organizations.
This May, a joint team from WASC and ACSI came to assess the standard of our school. After three days of intense review, where all aspects of the school were examined and scrutinized, Dr. Derek Keenan of ACSI gave the entire Ichthus team a glowing oral report. Part of his assessment were these words.
Today, we are delighted to announce that both organizations have awarded ACCREDITATION to Ichthus School. The 6-year Accreditation Status is effective July 1, 2015 - June 30, 2021.
What does this mean for our student community? Schools and universities around the world will recognize the quality of education your child has received at Ichthus School. You can also be assured that our school, programs, and staff have been evaluated and placed at a high, international level.
We, at Ichthus School, are thankful to all the members of the Ichthus Advisory Council, leaders, teachers, staff, students and parents who devoted their valuable time, collaborative effort, and knowledge to achieve this goal. You believed in the quality of Ichthus. This accreditation is proof that, before and into the future, you are part of a school which operates and teaches at excellent standards.
“The school has developed a comprehensive warm and nurturing environment that is very Christ-centered and benefits the lives of students and their families.”
“The dedication of the Ichthus leadership to the present well-being of the School, and its commitment to continuation as a Christ-centered school of excellence and influence in Indonesia.”
