District Accreditation

The St. Johns County School District pursued and was granted District Accreditation status in April, 2013. The 2017-18 school year is an accreditation review year for the district.

Welcome to the St. Johns County School District Accreditation general information site. This site will provide the St. Johns County staff and community and opportunity to become more familiar with AdvancED Accreditation. AdvancED was created through a 2006 merger of the PreK-12 divisions of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI)—and expanded through the addition of the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) in 2011.

District Accreditation recognizes that increasing student achievement involves more than improving instruction. It is a result of how well all the parts of the education system, district, schools, and classrooms, work together to meet the needs of students. District Accreditation, as a quality assurance process, validates St. Johns County’s outstanding accomplishments. We invite you to review the information on this website and become familiar with the process of quality assurance and learn more about the St. Johns County School District.

What does accreditation mean for our students?

Students gain greater access to federal loans, scholarships, military programs and colleges, as a result of accreditation.
