Trinity-Byrnes re-accredited through 2025
Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School, a college preparatory school in the Pee Dee region, is unanimously approved for re-accreditation by the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) through 2025.
Ed Hoffman, Head of School, said: “The Southern Association of Independent Schools accreditation process certainly highlights the excellent academic program, caring environment and superior college placement program available at TBCS. Our students, teachers, staff, parents and board should be commended for the results that were highlighted by the team.”
SAIS is a membership organization encompassing four countries and 14 U.S. states. SAIS accredited schools are part of a network of schools that have demonstrated success in educating children.
Per SAIS guidelines and standards, to earn accreditation, schools must meet rigorous quality standards, be evaluated by an outside group of peer professionals, and implement a school plan focused on continuous strategic school improvement and demonstrated student performance. SAIS accreditation is recognized as a symbol of quality in education for students and teachers.
The accreditation process for Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School began in 2019 with a self-study and review of all internal procedures by the SAIS Board. The accreditation team completed their review by conducting a three-day visit to the Trinity-Byrnes campus in March, after which re-accreditation was approved.
The SAIS accreditation team specifically noted of Trinity-Byrnes that “amidst this warm school community is a program that prioritizes high academic performance while also offering a myriad of opportunities for students engagement and leadership, whether through the avenues of athletics, clubs, student government or the dynamic arts program.”
