LTSA is now accredited with AdvanceED!
Lake Travis STEM Academy is proud to receive accreditation by SACS CASI, an accrediting division of AdvancED. The accreditation demonstrates our dedication to continuous improvement in all that we do.
We are committed to inspiring our students and creating authentic curriculum, to providing a balanced learning environment, and to nurturing children’s natural curiosity about their world with student-centered experiences.
Our goal is to help our students become critical thinkers and problem solvers through Experiential Learning, project-based learning (PBL), the development of 21st century skills (also known as P21), and most importantly, the integration of STEM throughout all classes (K-12) and levels of our curriculum.
What is AdvancED
AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site reviews of a variety of educational institutions and systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While its expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, AdvancED is far from a typical accrediting agency. Its goal isn’t to certify that educational institutions are good enough; rather, its commitment is to help these institutions continuously improve.
What is the AdvancED accreditation
SACS CASI provides nationally-recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet rigorous standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school, and implement a continuous process of school improvement.
Why is the AdvancED accreditation important?
The AdvancED Accreditation demonstrates to students, parents, and the community that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation staffed by highly qualified educators.
SACS CASI accreditation is recognized across state lines, which not only eases the transfer process as students move from accredited school to accredited school, but also assures parents that the school is meeting nationally accepted standards for quality and successful professional practice.
