Al-Huda School has been fully accredited by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) since the Fall of 2007 through 2029, masha'Allah. Check our accreditation.

Accreditation is a multifaceted evaluation process that schools and school systems voluntarily use to demonstrate they are meeting a defined set of research-based performance standards. CESS-MSA accredits early childhood through post-secondary, non-degree granting public, private, faith-based educational institutions including special purpose schools, and learning services providers. In its 130 years of operations, CESS-MSA has accredited hundreds of schools in the U.S. and overseas. 

Al-Huda School was the first Islamic School that received its accreditation from CESS-MSA in 2007, Alhamdulillah.
