Middle States Accreditation: Excellence by Design

  • By the time students have experienced our full educational program and services, what should our students know and how should they be able to use what they know? What content, skills, and work habits should be the priorities for learning? What attitudes, qualities or characteristics should our students demonstrate?
  • How well should our students perform the desired outcomes, and what does excellent performance look like?
  • How will we measure and evaluate our students’ performance in multiple ways?
  • How well do our students currently perform? What is the actual quality of their work?
  • What must we do to grow and improve our students’ performance?
