Lutheran schools accredited through National Lutheran Schools Accreditation (NLSA) meet or exceed state standards for high quality schools. To be NLSA accredited, schools must complete a rigorous self-study, be reviewed by a team of peers, and they must implement initiatives that provide a continuing program of excellence for students.
The purpose of an NLSA self-study is to evaluate the actual conditions in place that are related to essential indicators of school quality. These are evaluated and measured in seven specific standard areas:
- Professional Personnel
- Student Services
- Teaching and Learning
