The Alabama Independent School Association is pleased to announce that Macon East Academy is the recipient of the AISA Class AA CHAIRMAN'S AWARD designation for the 2020-2021 school year. The Chairman's Award was established by the AISA for the specific purpose of recognizing member schools that achieve athletic excellence during the school year. This award also serves as a symbol of recognition to the individuals who have given unselfishly of their time to serve as Chairperson of the Alabama Independent School Association Athletic Committee. The criteria for winning the AISA Chairman's Award includes achievement in all areas of the school’s athletic programs: state champions in all sports, All-Star Selection, scholarship, participation in different sports, finishing in the top four in State Play-offs, sportsmanship, student-athlete award, and no eligibility problems.
The AISA Blue Ribbon Award program is sponsored by the AISA to recognize member schools with outstanding educational programs. In order to be considered for the AISA Blue Ribbon Award, a school must complete a rigorous application process and exemplify excellence in scholastic achievement, professional learning, student involvement and community interaction. These schools have demonstrated a high level of excellence in their academic and student programs and are very worthy recipients of the AISA Blue Ribbon Award.
The AISA has been steadfast in its efforts since 1970 to maintain an organization of independently operated non-public schools that are rich in diversity, committed to academic and athletic excellence, and deeply concerned about the growth and development of children and youth. Two of the association’s goals is to provide quality educational services and programs that ultimately serve to enrich the educational experiences of the students within its member schools; and provide programs of athletic opportunities for those parents choosing an alternative to public education.
