MARTIN COUNTY -- Clark Advanced Learning Center Executive Director Maria Mosley has announced that the A-rated charter high school has earned continuing accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement, an accreditation division of AdvancED.
This action was taken at the AdvancED Accreditation Commission meeting held on June 22. Clark Advanced Learning Center, located on the Indian River State College Chastain Campus in Stuart, is ranked as the third best charter high school and seventh best high school in Florida.
SACS CASI provides nationally-recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet SACS CASI's high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement. Accreditation is granted on a five-year term.
"Accreditation demonstrates to our students, parents and community that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation staffed by highly qualified educators," said Ms. Mosley. "This accreditation is recognized across state lines and assures parents that the school is meeting nationally accepted standards for quality and successful professional practice."
Clark students have an opportunity to complete one to two years of college at no cost through dual enrollment, engage in internships related to their interests, and utilize technology in project-based learning. A personal laptop computer is assigned to each student while in attendance at the school.
