Middle States Association
In April 2022, Quality Schools International and all existing QSI schools achieved accreditation as a school system through the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA)! Working toward the Achieving Excellence System-Wide accreditation encouraged QSI to reflect on where we are now and where we want to be in 5-7 years. QSI schools will maintain accreditation through a continual process of identifying areas for growth and implementing community-supported action plans to achieve the growth targets. You can find our four primary objectives, action plans, self-study and our Official Notice of Accreditation on the QSI website at https://www.qsi.org/why-qsi/accreditation.
The Middle States Association (MSA) is a worldwide leader in accreditation and school improvement. For over 125 years, Middle States has been helping school leaders establish and reach their goals, develop strategic plans, promote staff development, and advance student achievement.
