Weekly Parent Email – November 12, 2021

November 12, 2021

Next week our school will be hosting members of a visiting accreditation team! In preparation for renewing our accreditation, we have spent many hours looking at our school’s data to self-reflect. We have reviewed many aspects of our academics, school culture, and professional development to find areas where we can improve. In doing so, we have been gratified to see how much progress we have made since the last time we went through this process five years ago. We are firm believers in continuous improvement and are committed to providing the best possible education for our students.

Many thanks to all of the parents and students who have volunteered to participate in interviews. We love sharing our passion for transformational learning with others!

Warmly, 

Anya Yeager 

Executive Director, Williamsburg Academy
