Middle States Association Accreditation

Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools

For more than 30 years, the Academy has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (Middle States), one of six regional accrediting organizations recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Based on its rigorous academic curriculum and successful fulfillment of all 12 Middle States Standards, or “Best Practices” in education and administration, the Academy was awarded a seven-year accreditation, the longest accreditation term granted by Middle States, during its most recent review.
