The Young Adult Learning Center has been recommended for accreditation through the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools! Â On May 9th, after four days of hosting a Middle States team that consisted of educators from all over the Mid-Atlantic, the YALC was recommended for full 7-year accreditation.
The YALC has been working hard all year to prepare for the accreditation visit. Â The process started with a self-study that dove into 12 different areas of school-functioning, including sections on mission and vision, governance and leadership, educational program, student services, facilities, finance, amongst others.
In order to get information for the self-study, students and staff filled out surveys that gave them the ability to express their thoughts on what was going well and what still needed improvement. The 250-page self-study document summarized the surveys and evidence gathered to give the YALC staff a good critical look at its programs and operations.
During the four day visit, the Middle States team documented, in a glowing report, that the YALC met the accreditation standards in all 12 areas! The YALC team is excited to move forward with the action plan that was created during the accreditation process, a plan that will focus on making the YALC even better for its students.
