It’s A’s all around for the Lafayette Catholic Schools! Earlier this month, the Indiana Department of Education released their 2013-14 Accountability Grades for all Indiana schools. The Lafayette Catholic School System achieved a straight A report card:
St. Mary Cathedral (K–3) – A
St. Boniface (4-6) – A
St. Lawrence (K-6) – A
Central Catholic (7-12) – A
We thank and congratulate our Principals and teachers for their countless hours and dedication to ensuring their students continue to strive for greatness. We are so blessed!
A few years ago the Indiana State Board of Education changed the accountability labels for schools to the easy to understand letter grades of A, B, C, D and F. The A-F model is Indiana’s way of allowing parents and communities to better recognize how schools are performing with much of the assessment being based on academic student growth.
While the A-F Accountability system may be necessary for Indiana to measure the performance of its schools, we in the Catholic schools know there are many other measures of evaluating our schools. As our tag line states, the LCSS is in the business of Preparing Students for Life. We are about educating the WHOLE student, and as a result we know the true measure of the quality of the education we provide is in our students and graduates. They are using their God given gifts to aim high and make a difference in the lives of others all in the name of Christ.
