During the week of March 2, Ignite Christian Academy hosted some important visitors who took a close look at our school. Three representatives from AdvancED spent three days at ICA to find out how the academy serves its students and evaluate our application for accreditation renewal.
AdvancED's accreditation process is focused on helping schools grow over time as they complete accreditation activities. For Ignite Christian Academy, these activities started several months ago with the distribution of surveys to students, parents, faculty, and staff. Once the surveys were completed, the ICA administration completed all the supporting paperwork to show the AdvancED team what ICA is all about.
During last week's visit, the AdvancED team continued to learn more and more about ICA as they asked questions, observed teachers, and spoke with parents and students. Overall, it was a very successful visit.
I would like to thank all of those who helped make this accreditation visit possible. Thank you to all the parents and students who gave their time to speak with the visiting team and tell them about Ignite Christian Academy. Also, thank you to all the faculty and staff for hosting the team and sharing ICA with them. Lastly, thank you to the students who prepared videos and sent them in to show the visiting team what it is like to be a student at ICA. Take a peek at the video to see what they said about their experience.
Additional information about our accreditation renewal will be available in the months to come. Keep your eye on the ICA Today for the latest updates!
