The Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) is a private educational accrediting agency established under the auspices of the Bishops of the Catholic (Arch) Dioceses of California.

The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation is an ongoing six-year cycle of quality whereby the school demonstrates the capacity, commitment, and competence to support high-quality student learning and ongoing school improvement. The school assesses its program and its impact on student learning with respect to the WASC criteria/indicators and other accreditation factors.

Notre Dame Academy proudly announces their Six Year Accreditation Term for the years of 2011 through June of 2017.
