Princeton High School International was recently accredited through the National Association of Private Schools.
Chancellor Dr. Roderick Williams Sr. said NAPS is the top private school accreditation in the country.
The program helps students get their degrees and is internationally recognized. The main campus is in Alexander City
Global Evangelical Accrediting Commission already accredits the school and all teachers and staff have state teacher licenses from Alabama and private school licenses.
“Princeton High School serves ninth through 12th grade and also adults of all ages,” Williams said. “And we have had graduates of all ages to gain better employment, be accepted into many colleges and to the military.”
Students need 28 credits for a regular diploma and 32 for a college preparatory diploma.
“Accreditation lets them know Princeton has high standards,” Williams said. “The average high school (student) graduates with 24 to 26 credits.”
Williams said about 200 students have graduated from the program in the last five years, and the program partners with high schools as an alternative educational resource.
“It helps to empower communities and helps to increase graduation rates,” Williams said.
The school includes campuses in Roanoke, West Point, Georgia, and even Washington D.C. for international students.
“Accreditation is also big for the international community,” Williams said.
