Standards for Independent School Accreditation

Ste Jeanne d'Arc School is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

Independent schools must meet all fifteen Standards for Accreditation. If a school is found not to be in compliance with one or more standard, the Commission on Independent Schools will set a date by which the standard(s) must be met if the school is to retain its accreditation.

The Commission has established “suggested indicators” for each standard that it feels represent good practices which schools are encouraged to meet. Schools are not required to comply with all indicators, however, and are welcome to submit other data and information to document their compliance with the standards.  For more information, please visit
