Miriam School is accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) and is a proud member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the Independent Schools of St. Louis (ISSL). Miriam School’s program has also been approved by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
Approved Private Agencies with DESE are described in the Missouri State Plan for Special Education, Regulation XIV. DESE approval to function as an approved private agency allows IEP teams in local school districts to consider placing a student in our program when the student’s educational needs can no longer be met in a less restrictive educational placement at the local school district.
The ISACS team members reviewed our survey findings and goals, met with faculty and staff, Board of Trustees and our Steering Committee in February 2018 resulting in full accreditation.
