It was the first school in Missouri to be accredited by NCA CASI in 1904. Today, NCA CASI, an accrediting division for AdvancED, assists schools and districts through the accreditation process and helps those institutions demonstrate a continuous commitment to providing quality education programs that are aimed at improving student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet AdvancED's high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school, and implement a continuous process of school improvement. Students, parents and the community can take legitimate pride in this fine tradition of accreditation at Central High School.
Accreditation demonstrates to parents and the community that the school is dedicated to providing students with the quality education and that they are open to external scrutiny. It assures them that the school is focused on improving learning for all students. Parents and the interested community can learn more about accreditation at http://www.advanc-ed.org/.
