Albany Diocese Catholic Schools Accredited by AdvancED

The recommendation to accredit our system of 22 schools and the Catholic School Office has been made by the External Review Team! Congratulations to one and all for contributing in some way to this momentous occasion in the history of Catholic education in the Diocese of Albany.


Conference Rooms 1 and 2 were standing room only as we listened to the Team’s report. It included an overview of the process they used, data collected on their visits to the classrooms in every school, and their findings on our system. Those findings included data on classroom environment, powerful practices that affirmed our outstanding efforts, and improvement priorities that provide direction in implementing our “2020 Vision”.


We express our thanks to the visiting team members who volunteered their service, time, and talent to our system of schools. Their work was outstanding, acknowledging the great work of the schools both individually and collectively with their recommendation for accreditation.


We now await the final report which will reflect in a formal way that which was delivered by the Team today.
