The review was conducted by five team members of the AdvancED who visited Word of God Academy spring 2015. Their review included visiting with leadership, board members, faculty, teachers, parents, and community leaders. They observed classrooms as they toured our Pre-School, Elementary and Middle-High School campuses. This was a major part of the accreditation that began in 2013. We submitted over 3,000 documents that were studied and reviewed in a vigorous campaign that highlighted three domains: Teaching, Leadership, and Resources. Their findings were placed within a report that compared WOGA to 32,000 other national and international schools [PreK-12]. WOGA was given a score on these three domains in relation to the overall average of schools within the AdvancED community abroad. Our scores are listed below:
Domain : WOGA Review Score : AE Network Average :
Teaching 326.67 272.32
Leadership 374.55 294.44
Resources 357.14 282.93
Overall Score 345.64 282.45
Our overall score reflects that we are 63.19 points higher than the average of 32,000 schools of 20 million students! This report is a reflection of the heart and conviction of WOGA. Word of God Academy has been approved by the Louisiana Department of Education every year since 2010 and now, as of June 2015, has earned the distinction of being approved and fully accredited by LDOE.
