Dear Kempenfelt Bay School Parent:

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important responsibilities of a parent. Congratulations on choosing Kempenfelt Bay School, one of the best schools represented by the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS).

CAIS is a community of the best schools in Canada.

To be accredited, CAIS schools value ongoing improvement and commit to a voluntary assessment process that is rigorous and thorough. As a result of this commitment, CAIS schools are widely regarded to be among the best in the world.

Why should this matter to you as a parent?

We know all parents seek and expect the best for their children. You want your child to grow, learn and thrive, to be exposed to great teaching and learning opportunities, and to reach his/her potential in every area of academic and social development.

In a school accredited by CAIS, you can be assured that your child is going to receive all this and more.

CAIS member schools meet the highest of National Standards - not just Ministry of Education requirement - in all aspects of program and operation including Co-Curriculum and Learning Environment; Academic Program; Human Resources; Admissions; Governance; Finance; Physical Plant; and Health and Safety. Our 12 National Standards are congruent with the internationally accepted criteria adopted by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAID) International Commission on Accreditation. Visit our website for detail on the National Standards.

CAIS schools are, therefore, by definition, committed to unmatched educational experiences and an ongoing commitment to improvement in every aspect of school life. A CAIS review is holistic, comprehensive and rigorous. CAIS accreditation is a peer-reviewed, exhaustive process that examines school operations from every angle.

No other Canadian accreditation or standards organization in education is as complete or thorough. And because it is arm's length from the school's own administration, evaluation enables schools like Kempenfelt Bay School to be more accountable to parents, and ultimately, to students themselves. This is a win-win and gives the platform upon which to grow, improve and expand.

How does CAIS impact your child directly?

In additions to school accreditation, CAIS offers a wide variety of programs including National Student Leadership Conferences at both the Middle and Senior School levels; National Sports Tournaments; Professional Development for teachers and school administrators and much more. You can learn about these exciting opportunities at

Thank you for your support of our school, and please remember that as a parent in a CAIS accredited school, you have made a choice to give your child an outstanding educational opportunity.

We wish you and your family a happy, healthy and successful 2012-2013 school year.


Anne Marie Kee

Executive Director, CAIS
