Strategic Planning and Quality Assurance
Under the Middles States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) Excellence by Design standards, the Board of Directors and the Admin Team have successfully concluded an 18-month self-study process and adopted a new strategic plan for the 2020-27 period. We are focusing on: a comprehensive and exemplary School Health Program, improved numeracy and literacy, and an increase in scores in college level courses through Advanced Placement courses. In addition, CRIA has partnered with Grand Canyon University to have CRIA students challenge themselves with dual enrollment university courses within the CRIA high school program. Every year, we very much look forward to input from all school community stakeholders, including students, parents, faculty, admin staff and school leadership to achieve our strategic plan goals and objectives, and to make adjustments along the way. CRIA is fully accredited for the Pre-K to Grade 12 program with the MSA, and is the only school in Guanacaste that is US accredited. The MSA has determined that CRIA meets or exceeds all twelve standards for quality schools.
Congratulations to our teachers, support staff, administration, parents, students and Board members for such a great achievement!The strategic plan is in keeping with our mission as a college preparatory school that inspires a passion for learning and develops responsible leaders for the future. The Plan should also help us to achieve our vision of becoming a world class school with high expectations, high performance and accountability.
