American University Preparatory School is proud to have received accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is a regional accrediting agency serving a diverse membership of public and private higher education institutions throughout California, Hawaii, and the Pacific as well as a limited number of institutions outside the U.S.

Through its work of peer review, based on standards agreed to by the membership, the WASC encourages continuous institutional improvement and assures the membership and its constituencies, including the public, that accredited institutions are fulfilling their missions in service to their students and the public good.

The WASC is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as certifying institutional eligibility for federal funding in a number of programs, including student access to federal financial aid.
