Green Valley Academy has been accepted as a Candidate Member of the Middle States Association of Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools. Our school is the first of its kind to be accepted as a Candidate member of the MSA-CESS. With this new status, GVA will benefit from all the rights and privileges of being a Member.
One of the privileges is that MSA-CESS will work with GVA to assist us in establishing and reaching goals, developing a strategic plan, promoting staff development and more. Meeting the standards of the MSA-CESS gives GVA students the advantage of attending a school with high standards where student achievement is paramount.
Being a member of MSA-CESS will also provide our staff with a sense of pride in their work and provide them with opportunities for professional development. MSA-CESS is one of the only accrediting agencies accepted by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
The Pennsylvania State Board of Education approved the Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools to serve as an approved accreditation organization under the Private Academic Schools Act in 2015.
