National Lutheran School Accreditation
National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) is a process of self-evaluation followed by a visit of trained objective observers to help Lutheran schools improve the quality of their programs. The process is completely voluntary and available for every school operated by one or more congregations of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. NLSA is a rigorous national accredited process designed to evaluate schools based on their unique purpose as Lutheran Schools. It helps schools evaluate not only quality of the academics and programs, but also most importantly the spiritual dimension of the school. The “Standards for Lutheran Schools” and report forms are similar to those used by other accrediting agencies, both secular and religious. There are many benefits to accreditation.
