Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents,
EID MUBARAK! InshaAllah you enjoyed the Eid celebration with your family and friends.
Alhamdulillah, the accreditation visit went very well. The accreditation team was very impressed with TIA and had a lot of praise for all stakeholders. They were able to feel the
sincerity and dedication to TIA from everyone they spoke to. That is
the board members, school committee
members, parents, alumni students, teachers, and staff.
Alhamdulillah, TIA has passed all the standards. The committee will now submit a written report to NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) about their findings and what they observed and experienced firsthand while in our building. NEASC will meet in June and vote whether to grant the accreditation to TIA. Because we passed all the standards, and got the approval of the committee, we are in a good place inshaAllah.
While working on the accreditation, we wrote a 62-page self-study report and submitted it to
the NEASC committee. The report addressed all the standards and all the questions (indicators).
The list of the standards below gives you a window of what the teachers and staff were doing
during the numerous half days.
Standard 1: Enrolled Students Align Appropriately with the Mission. (6 questions)
Standard 2: The Governing Body/Board Assures the School Remains Sustainable and True to its Mission. (14 questions)
Standard 3: The School's Resources Sufficiently Support Present and Prospective Operation. (8
Standard 4: The School Assures that the Adult Community is Qualified and Organized to
Implement the Mission. (5 questions)
Standard 5: A Proactive Culture of Health and Safety Permeates the School. (4 questions)
Standard 6: Not applicable to TIA
Standard 7: Commitment to Mission and Core Beliefs Informs Decisions, Guides Initiatives and
Aligns with the Students' Needs and Aspirations. (7 questions)
Standard 8: Commitment to Inspiration and Support Characterizes the Approach to Each Student. (10 questions)
Standard 9: Commitment to Excellence Distinguishes the Program. (15 questions)
Standard 10: Commitment to Continuous Professional Development Permeates the Adult Culture. (9 questions)
Standard 11: Commitment to Engaging with the Greater Community Enhances Student Experience. (6 questions)
Standard 12 and 13: Not applicable to TIA
Standard 14: Commitment to Long-Term Viability and Innovation Guides Planning. (8 questions)
I would like to thank the parents, the teachers and staff and the governing body for their support and patience through this process.

putting together the report.
