This past year Boulder Creek Academy completed the AdvancEd/Cognia Academic school accreditation with flying colors.
According to AdvancEd/Cognia, “Accreditation is pivotal to leveraging education quality and continuous improvement. Using a set of rigorous research-based standards, the accreditation process examines the whole institution — the program, the cultural context and the community of stakeholders — to determine how well the parts work together to meet the needs of learners.”
The accreditation team spent two rigorous days meeting with, observing, reviewing evidence and interviewing everyone; the Administrative Team, academic staff, clinical team, Student Life team, students, parents and connecting with the Academic Learning Center. As a result of the two day evaluation, BCA received an Index of Education Quality score of 335, The AdvancED Improvement Network results report the average benchmark within the network to typically score between 278-283. Boulder Creek Academy was granted a 6-year accreditation. Boulder Creek Academy is very proud to continue to have the accreditation status since 2005, and proud to continue to provide a quality education to the students who are enrolled.
Charla Suppé, M.S., the Academic Director for the past 5 years, attributes this fabulous score and 6 year accreditation to the hard work the entire school did in preparing for this visit. Charla states, “I appreciate the professional manner in which the accrediting team took the time to really see the school and all that it has to offer.”
Since the accreditation, Charla has now stepped into the role of Business Development Director, and Kenton Clairmont, M.S. is being welcomed as the new Academic Director. Kenton is ready to pick up the torch and move forward and in new directions. “Boulder Creek is very excited to have Kenton join the team”, states Executive Director Lisa Hester, “bringing all of the expertise from his vast experience in Physical Education, health and program involvement. We look forward to a future that will continue to flourish.”
