It's Finally OVER!

A couple of years prior to the pandemic, Validus Preparatory Academy was designated as a CSI school. 

Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI)schools that performed at level 1 on a combination of ESSA indicators or schools with a graduation rate of less than 67 percent. That distinction has been lifted and we have been promoted to Local Support and Improvement (LSI) by the New York State Education Department. For more information click here.
