Middle States Accreditation
In December of 2013, we were re-accredited by Middle States.
The Value of the Middle States Accreditation
Accreditation is a valuable and prestigious achievement among traditional and non-traditional schools, colleges and universities throughout the world. The U.S. Department of Education recognizes accrediting or state-approval agencies, including Middle States Association (MSA), as a "reliable authority as to the quality of education.”
Accreditation is an impartial, third-party validation that an educational institution meets challenging, but achievable standards of quality, and provides a mechanism for continuous school improvement. It is a dynamic process which requires the commitment and involvement of a wide range of stakeholders. It engages the community and ultimately assures the public of an organization's integrity.
Girard College, like all other schools accredited by MSA, must periodically renew its accreditation.
