Western Catholic Education Association

Bishop Manogue Catholic High School is accredited by the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA). WCEA is a private educational accrediting agency established under the auspices of the Bishops of the Catholic (Arch) Dioceses of California. The mission of the WCEA is to promote quality Catholic education for students in our member elementary and secondary schools through an accrediting process that assures the primacy of faith formation and educational excellence. The major purpose of this agency is to coordinate the accreditation process by assisting schools in their self-evaluative programs, to establish general standards for excellence, to grant WCEA Accreditation, and to cooperate formally with regional accrediting organizations as determined by the WCEA Board of Directors.

WCEA currently uses the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) “Focus on Learning” protocol with a Catholic adaptation for secondary schools.
