The School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS-CASI), the Mexican Ministry of Education (SEP), and the National University of Mexico (UNAM).

Why is accreditation important?
- * Accreditation represents a commitment to quality education.
- * Accredited schools have a common core of transferable studies that meet world standards, differentiated only by typicality and appropriate concessions to culture.
- * Accredited schools undergo regular re-evaluation by teams of professional educators whose focus is on school improvement and measuring student progress.
- * Accreditation is a "seal of approval" and although not essential, it is important for students who will re-enter a school or university in the United States.
