WRISA Site Visit Conclusion
Good news–the WRISA visiting team is recommending CCS for provisional accreditation! They expressed commendations across the spectrum of our academics, operations, and spiritual atmosphere. And of course, they identified several areas of weakness that we need to bolster, and made several helpful recommendations to that end. We’ll be reviewing those areas in the coming months and making changes as needed to improve our institutional effectiveness. Praise God for a successful site visit! We are one HUGE step closer to our long-term goal of accreditation.
