“We are all incredibly excited to be accepted into CAIS,” said CFO Lauri Kober. “The school does such an amazing job for our students, it’s nice to be recognized as part of a group of schools providing an excellent educational experience.”
CAIS is a non-profit organization of schools in California. According to their website, their mission is to “serve and strengthens its schools by setting standards of academic quality and ethical conduct, by providing for the professional growth of faculty, administrators, and trustees, and by promoting ethnic and socio-economic diversity.”
“As a provisional member we are able to tap into all the resources they have at their disposal for independent schools— whether it be pedagogy or business development,” said Head of School John O’Brien.
Login information for the private section of the website will be available soon so staff and faculty can avail themselves of the many opportunities for professional development.
“Being a member of CAIS elevates our profile in the world of independent schools and enhances our ability to serve more students,” said John.
Going forward, John says, Stanbridge is looking to acquire joint accreditation with CAIS and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), with whom Stanbridge has been accredited since 1998.
