Guam - As several Catholic schools celebrated Mercy Day today, at Saint Anthony's Catholic School in Tamuning they had something else to celebrate. They are the first Catholic school on Guam to have dual accreditation. According to Superintendent of Catholic Schools Cynthia Agbulos, it's a journey that started three years ago.
Agbulos told KUAM News, "We decided to do a dual accreditation for our schools not only with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, but we also decided to do Western Catholic Education Association."
SACS if the first Catholic school to go through the full process and has received six-year accreditation from both institutions. Principal Sister Doris San Agustin said, "It really just give us more enthusiasm to work hard we're proud of achieving what we're required and expected to be as a Catholic school and educators. We're just doing the very best we can and we're proud of our accomplishment thank you."
Saint Anthony Catholic School has an enrollment of close to 750 students.
