The Landing School announced that it has been selected as a recipient of a School of Excellence Award from the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges.

According to a letter from Executive Director Dr. Michale McComis, the award “recognizes schools for their commitment to the expectations and rigors of ACCSC accreditation, as well as efforts in maintaining high-level of achievement among their students. In order to be eligible for the award, a school must meet all of the eligibility criteria established by the Commission for its School of Distinction Award and a majority of the school’s graduation and employment rates from all programs offered must meet or exceed the average rates of graduation and employment among all ACCSC accredited institutions.”

“Accreditation is an incredibly important part of a school’s culture and quality control,” DeColfmacker said, “and this award is a testament to the quality and dedication of the entire Landing School community. I thank all members of this great faculty, staff and student body who helped us achieve this recognition.”

Founded in 1978, The Landing School’s mission is to effectively prepare men and woman for careers in the marine industry as practical yacht designers, boat builders and marine systems technicians who work professionally on today’s vessels, adapt to the marine industry’s evolving technology and appreciate the traditions of the past.
