RE: Academia achieves 5-year accreditation with CEA

Aloha Students and Friends of Academia:

I am extremely pleased and proud to report that Academia has been granted 5-year accreditation by CEA, the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation.

I could not be more proud of our entire staff. Accreditation review by CEA is an extremely rigorous process and accreditation is granted only to those institutions that meet the highest standards of instructional, curricular and organizational quality. Of the nine schools that were reviewed for accreditation at CEA’s December meeting, Academia was the only school that was granted 5-year accreditation. All other schools were either granted 1-year accreditation or were denied accreditation. This is a testament to the quality and dedication of our entire Academia Ohana, and of all of their tireless efforts of the past several years.

We are honored to achieve accreditation with CEA and we will constantly work to earn the trust that they – and you, our students and partners – have placed in us. We will do so by maintaining the highest levels of instructional quality, providing innovative language programs, and by offering the best and most personalized service to each one of our students. We also intend to expand our partnerships with local and mainland universities in the coming months so that we can provide even more options for post-secondary education and growth to all of our students once they graduate from Academia.

We look forward to helping you achieve your language learning goals in 2013 and beyond!

Thank you sincerely for helping to make Academia the truly excellent institution that it has become.
