Middle States Accreditation
For the 2012-2013 school year, Bishop McNamara High School will be doing a Self-Study on the various programs and activities as part of the Middle States Accreditation process. Accreditation is a voluntary process by which the quality of the school's educational program and supporting services are measured against internationally recognized standards of quality.
Bishop McNamara has chosen the Excellence by Design protocol that uses strategic planning as a vehicle for growth and improvement in student performance and in the school’s capacity to affect that growth. Excellence by Design leads the school to establish objectives for improving student performance and organizational capacity based on its vision of a preferred future for its students. Therefore, Excellence by Design is a future-oriented and visionary process. In addition, the protocol provides for a continuous review of programs and services and of the results of student performance. It also allows diverse constituent groups to participate in charting the future of the institution.
