Principal Linda Joyner was recently notified that St. Mary Parish School has been awarded Exemplary Status in the area of Catholic Identity for the second consecutive accreditation cycle. In October, 2011, St. Mary went through the Accreditation process and was fully accredited by the Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Association and the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Wasting little time, the school’s leadership team prepared and submitted an application to the Exemplary Recognition program in the area of Catholic Identity. The Exemplary Recognition program honors schools that have demonstrated innovation and outstanding results in one of six key areas.
Principal Joyner received the notification letter from Dr. Kathleen Cepelka, Superintendent of Catholic Schools in which Dr. Cepelka stated, “The visiting team recognized the well-developed program in this area that has become part of the life of the school and a key support for student learning. Thank you for your commitment to providing the highest quality Catholic education to your community in the area of Catholic Identity, and warmest congratulations!”
