Trident Academy is accredited by 3 distinct entities: Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS), AdvancEd, and Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE). SAIS and AdvancEd are done at the same time. The Academy accreditation is on a different cycle and will be coming up in a couple more years.
This year we will begin the process of self-study and goal setting needed to complete the requirements for SAIS/AdvancEd accreditation which will take place in the spring of 2020. There is an 18-month process involved in preparing for it! Soon you will be receiving more information about surveys and focus groups. We need all of our constituents (students, parents, teachers, administrators, board members, alums, and friends) to be a part of shaping our future. Please help us continue to grow and mature and become better at what we do by participating in the process. We will have more information later about ways you can be involved in our reflection!
This week has been rather quiet! Lower school students have gotten back into the routine of school, high school students worked all week on a forensics project and our middle school spent the week in the mountains! Next week should be back to "normal"!!
Please plan to come for coffee and conversation on Wednesday morning after dropping off your child. Anne Hall (Dean of Faculty), Anne Vickers (OG Fellow), and I look forward to seeing you there!
