St. Vincent de Paul is an accredited by the Arkansas Nonpublic School Accrediting Association, Inc. (ANSAA). The mission of the ANSAA is to maintain and enhance the quality of education for all member schools through assessment, accountability, and internal review. Using a process of self-study and professional site visits, ANSAA schools must demonstrate compliance with established standards which are designed to support ongoing improvement.
ANSAA membership allows schools the opportunity to be a part of a cooperative effort to improve education at the state and local levels. The accreditation process involves the application of standards through a self-study and an annual review of the school’s progress. Accreditation also offers assurance to the school community that the school is committed to continuous improvement.
ANSAA is affiliated with the National Federation of Nonpublic School State Accrediting Associations (NFNSSAA) and the Council for American Private Education (CAPE). ANSAA Accredited schools are approved by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for the Student Exchange Visitor Service (SEVIS).
