Following the recent decision of the Commission on Accreditation of the Anglican Association of Colleges and Schools, the Western Orthodox University has been awarded the status of Accredited Member of the Association. The following is the agreed form of wording used to describe the University’s status:
The Western Orthodox University is an accredited member of the Anglican Association of Colleges and Schools. Accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of the Anglican Association of Colleges and Schools serves as a means of peer recognition among institutions providing Christian education within the United States and abroad, and confirms that an institution has met the Commission’s standards for effective operation.
Established in 2016, the Anglican Association of Colleges and Schools is the umbrella body for the educational institutions of the Apostolic Episcopal Church, the parent church of the University. The Apostolic Episcopal Church was founded in 1925 and has been recognized by the Statutes of the State of New York, USA, since 1932.
