Middle States Accreditation

Butler Catholic School is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools, the worldwide leader in accreditation. Through its accreditation and school improvement services, Middle States recognizes excellence in educational quality, strategic planning, and growth in student performance.

Accreditation is a voluntary process BCS engages in every seven years. It is an opportunity to review our progress and develop priorities for the future. Most importantly, it reaffirms our commitment to a culture of continuous improvement and is the foundation for a strategic plan.

BCS has recently completed and received its re-accreditation, which is in effect from December 1, 2018-December 1, 2025.

Our goals for growth and improvement over the next seven years are:
  • Improved student achievement in English Language Arts, with a focus on vocabulary, oral reading fluency, and comprehension
  • Improved student achievement in Mathematics, with a focus on computation, measurement, and math vocabulary, properties, and formulas
  • Supporting student’s digital fluency by developing and implementing a comprehensive technology plan, offering technology-oriented training opportunities to faculty, and increasing staff resources dedicated to technology
  • Strengthening our Advancement and Development program to provide financial sustainability and physical plant improvements
