Devereux’s Glenholme School receives strong vote of confidence from NEASC 

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Connecticut – The Glenholme School recently submitted a five-year interim evaluation report to the New England Association of Schools and Colleges’ (NEASC) Commission on Independent Schools – as part of its ongoing effort to maintain accreditation – and received a strong vote of confidence in return.  

In a letter to Devereux Connecticut – The Glenholme School Executive Director Noah Noyes, the commission wrote that it accepted the Washington, Conn.-based special needs boarding and day school’s interim evaluation report – which marks the halfway point of the reaccreditation process – “without reservation.” The letter also stated that one member of the commission characterized many of the steps The Glenholme School has taken as “best practices for any school.” 

In its report, The Glenholme School emphasized its ability to provide a high quality education for students with special needs through a comprehensive learning curriculum and individualized instruction. The Glenholme School also highlighted its faculty retention efforts, as well as the recent successful transition of executive directors. Read a previous news release on this topic. 

“We were thrilled to receive this positive and affirmative response from the commission to our programs and overall operation,” said Noyes. “Maintaining accreditation by the NEASC demonstrates our ongoing commitment to establishing, and adhering to, the highest standards of educational excellence. We look forward to our future, as we continue to strive to be a leader in the field of therapeutic boarding schools.” 

The accreditation process

The NEASC Commission on Independent Schools accredits a wide range of private schools in New England, including traditional boarding schools, day preparatory schools, private elementary schools, schools serving students with special needs, and religiously affiliated schools.  

Maintaining accreditation is an ongoing process that includes internal and external assessments, short- and long-term strategic planning, and periodic reporting. Schools are evaluated at regular intervals and undergo a full accreditation visit at least once every 10 years. 

The Glenholme School received its initial accreditation from the NEACS in 2004, and its next full site visit and reaccreditation will take place in 2024.  

“We are incredibly proud of the work we do at The Glenholme School to help students achieve both social and academic success,” Noyes explained. “We continually examine our programs – and set new goals – to ensure we are providing the best possible learning environment for our students, while meeting their unique needs.”  

About the Glenholme School
