St. Angela Merici School Named Cognia School of Distinction

Cognia, the global school improvement organization that accredits school districts worldwide named St. Angela Merici a School of Distinction for the 2023-23 school year. This recognition is based on the results of Cognia’s rigorous Accreditation Engagement Review Process. During the 2021-2022 school year, Cognia conducted approximately 1,500 school engagement reviews for accreditation. This year, 96 schools and school systems in 34 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and nine countries were recognized for excellence.

Their findings show that our school continues to demonstrate the highest standards and dedication to constant improvement of student learning. We received a five-year review IEQ score of 371 significantly surpassing the average of Cognia accredited schools worldwide. The average score for accredited institutions by Cognia is in the 278-283 range. We thank all of our faculty, parents, students and stakeholders for their continued hard work in ensuring our school continues to be a premier learning institution in the Greater New Orleans Metropolitan Area.

“The learning environment is student-focused with the goal of educating the whole child in the image of Jesus Christ, and school leadership is dedicated to providing the community with resources to live out that vision.”                                                Cognia Accreditation Team, 2022
