The Florida Catholic Conference - Accreditation Overview
St. Paul Catholic School is accredited by the Florida Catholic Conference (FCC). The FCC has a special program that focuses on the reaccreditation of Florida Catholic schools. One might think that being accredited simply means meeting the standards of the accrediting agency. While this is true, there is much more to accreditation than meeting standards. Going through the process of reaccreditation is an extremely valuable experience for a school. The process offers administrators, teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members the opportunity to be involved in school improvement, through the creation of a new School Improvement Plan. The plan has six areas and takes approximately 18 months to complete.
The reaccreditation process has two parts: Meeting the standards of the FCC and creating a new School Improvement Plan. (There are currently 90 educational standards.) A Visitation Team from the Florida Catholic Conference toured our school in the fall of 2012. An Executive Summary of their findings may be read here.

We're pleased to share some exciting news about a new fundraising program for our organization. It's called "scrip", and it's the fundraising program that works while you shop.
Scrip is simply a word that means "substitute money" - in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. They're the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including JCPenny, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster and many, many others.
