The United States government does not regulate the quality of educational programs offered at American schools and universities. Instead, the accreditation of a school tells you that the school has met a minimum standard of quality in its academic programs. Accrediting organizations are authorized by the US Department of Education to set these standards and then evaluate whether a school's program meets them. If so, then the school is said to be "accredited" by that body.
American Academy Casablanca, Morocco has been accredited by AdvancEd since 2008. AdvancED is a leading accrediting body in the United States and accredits K-12 schools and Universities world-wide. The AdvancED Performance Accreditation is a rigorous, clear and comprehensive program of evaluation and external review that is supported by research-based Standards and dedicated to helping institutions continuously work toward school improvement.
