About us

Sagesse High School is accredited by the Middle States Association since 2009. In its October 2016 meeting the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) voted to reaccredit Sagesse High school for a term of seven years expiring in December 2023.   

In Middle States Association’s Official Notice of Accreditation to Sagesse High School, MSA defines an accredited institution:   

“An “Accredited” institution is an educational organization that meets all MSA Standards for Accreditation, adheres to applicable MSA policies, and meets the requirements of the self-study protocol used. The institution agrees to adhere to all requirements for maintenance of accreditation.”  

Reasons why Sagesse High School has chosen Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) as an accrediting body:
The Middle States Association uses a holistic method to access the school and school systems. Instead of looking at test scores the MSA analyzes 12 key areas, these areas make up the MSA Standards for Accreditation:  
Mission • Governance and Leadership
School Improvement Planning
School Organization and Staff
Health and Safety
Educational Program
Assessment and Evidence of Student Learning
Student Services
Student Life and Activities
Information Resources    

The Benefit of MSA Accreditation at Sagesse High School  
Helps SHS plan for the future by providing direction through the development of a strategic plan and setting achievable goals;
Gives SHS staff a sense of pride in their work and provides opportunities for professional development;
Fosters stakeholder involvement between parents, teachers and administrators in support for the school improvement efforts;
Provides an advantage for the SHS parents who want their children to attend a school with high standards where student achievement is paramount, and
SHS graduates may find it easier to attend prestigious colleges that would have been otherwise impossible.
