Congratulations to ESLA staff and students for receiving Accreditation!
On December 12th 2013, LASC was granted accreditation by ACCET – A Partnership for Quality®. Not many schools are accredited and it takes years of hard work and constant academic improvement to become accredited.
ACCET is listed by The U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency.
The U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security have made it a requirement that all language schools in the United States become accredited. Schools that do not become accredited will eventually close.
Being accredited gives students security that ESLA is constantly providing quality academic programs and hiring and training highly qualified staff.
LASC would like to thank the ESLA Accreditation Team for leading the ESLA staff and students in achieving accreditation. The team worked long hours to strengthen academic programs, improve policies, and train staff, to prepare the school for accreditation.
