St. Ted’s Catholic School gets accredited

Published 9:00 am Sunday, May 24, 2015

The Minnesota Nonpublic School Accrediting Association board granted St. Theodore Catholic School with full accreditation status earlier this week.

Obtaining the status is a multiple-year process that starts with a comprehensive self-study review and reporting process, according to a news release. An on-site accreditation team visited the school on April 9 and 10 and met with staff, students, parents and board members. In the final step, the Minnesota Nonpublic School Accrediting Association board reviewed the entire application and voted on the results.

“We’re overjoyed to receive the accreditation status,” said St. Theodore Principal Sue Amundson. “This result further amplifies St. Theodore Catholic School’s pursuit of excellence in providing learning opportunities for the children of our community.”

Marsha Stenzel, superintendent for Catholic Schools, said obtaining the accreditation status could not have been achieved without the hard work and collaborative effort of the entire St. Theodore team.

She said Amundson and school board representative Elaine Dettle led the effort.

“These key leaders and the entire crew of teachers, staff, parents and school board members should be commended for their work,” Stenzel said. “I look forward to watching the school continue to succeed in the years ahead.”

The school celebrated the accomplishment with an ice cream social after the Parents and Kids Eat Together event on Friday.
