PALM HARBOR – Westlake Christian School, 1551 Belcher Road, has received accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

The latest honor comes after the school two years ago was named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education. Westlake already has accreditation from the Florida Council of Independent Schools.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools is one of six regional accreditations recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, and is a division of AdvanceED, the world’s largest education community, serving more than 30,000 public and private schools across the United States and more than 70 countries.

AdvanceED promotes the understanding that students must be prepared for a constantly evolving and diverse world. It also promotes that educational institutions have a deep responsibility to deliver a quality education.

“The accreditation process for any school is voluntary,” said Jayanne Roggenbaum, Westlake’s head of school. “We recognize the significance of opening our program to scrutiny by high quality accrediting bodies such as FCIS and SACS/AdvanceED. We are pleased Westlake continues to meet rigorous standards of not only FCIS but we also now have been acknowledged as meeting the equally scrupulous criterions for SACS/AdvanceED.”

Westlake joins a handful of schools in the Tampa Bay area to have both accreditations.

“The recognition and affirmation of our program represents another hallmark moment in Westlake’s history as a school and is a confirmation of our high standards and commitment to quality education,” Roggenbaum said. “We believe strongly that Christian education should provide excellence in both academics and in spiritual formation.”

Westlake Christian School is a ministry of Palm Harbor United Methodist Church.
