St. Brendan Catholic School awarded the highest term for accreditation for the fourth time (2022).




In March of 2003, St. Brendan Catholic School completed its first accreditation evaluation and earned a six-year accreditation term from Washington Catholic Education Association (WCEA). Every six years there after, we evaluate and perform a comprehensive examination of the following areas:

    • Catholic Identity
    • Organization
    • Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment
    • Support Services
    • Resources (Enrollment, Finance, Development)
A Strategic Plan is formulated to ensure we continually meet and exceed the expectations set forth.  As a result, St. Brendan Catholic School has been awarded highest term for Accreditation for a third time!



WCEA accredits Catholic elementary and secondary schools in nine western states (26 (arch) dioceses) and the US Territory of Guam. WCEA co-accredits and is in partnership with three Regional agencies (WASC, NAAS, NCA CASI) and two private agencies (CAIS and HAIS). WCEA began in 1957 in San Francisco and has a long and successful history of assisting school improvement through the accreditation process.
