Accreditation

Accreditation is a voluntary process which verifies that A Beka Academy meets reliable education standards. However, it does not guarantee the acceptance of credits since each institution or state creates its own policies of credit transfer. Some schools may require additional validation of academic achievement. Parents enrolling their students in either A Beka Academy Video Accredited Program or the Traditional Parent-Directed program need to meet all applicable local and state home school requirements.

The A Beka Academy Video Accredited Program and the Traditional Parent-Directed program are accredited by the following organizations:

Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools

MSA CESS accredits early-childhood through post-secondary institutions throughout the United States and member institutions in more than 85 countries around the world. The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools is recognized by national and international communities as the leader in both improving the quality of education through the accreditation process and affirming to the public the trustworthiness of its accredited members for the twenty-first century.
