2019-2020 Catholic Identity Standards Focus

The Authenticity of the School’s Catholic Identity: This principle of WCEA accreditation holds that a school’s Catholic identity ought to be authentic. Here, ‘authenticity’ has to do with a school’s two-fold orientation: toward God and toward human life. That is, in all its understandings and operations, the Catholic school is simultaneously oriented toward God (as he is worshiped and believed in the Catholic Church) and toward the formation of a human being – within himself and in relation to others. This is a formation in Christ and in culture.                Source: E3 2016 Accreditation Protocol, WCEA, pgs. 1-2.
