Catholic U. Fully Accepted into NCPSA

NCPSA's National Meeting in Williamsburg, VA was attended by Dr. Andrew Kremer, Dr. Daryl Hagan and Clay Petry, NCPSA Executive Director.

At the 2024 summer meetings of the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA), The Catholic University of America (Lumen Accreditation) was recognized as a full member of NCPSA. CUA began this process in the summer of 2022. 

In September 1993, several private accrediting organizations agreed to formalize a process to seek quality assurance and federal recognition, which led to the inception of the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA). Over thirty associations now hold full membership status in the Council. As a full member of NCPSA, The Catholic University of America receives several benefits, including recognition as an approved accreditor in Tennessee and Alabama. Learn more about NCPSA here

“We have developed a strong relationship with Clay and Larry at NCPSA as well as member institutions over the past two years,” comments Dr. Kremer, Director of the Program of Accreditation. “We are grateful for the collaboration of members and are honored to be a full member of NCPSA.” 

“Lumen Accreditation, offered by The Catholic University of America, is an asset to Catholic schools, providing rigorous standards and processes of excellence,” shared Clay Petry, Executive Director of NCPSA. “CUA is a qualified and credible accrediting association that is a fully recognized, valuable member institution of NCPSA.”

CUA looks forward to continuing relationships with NCPSA and its member institutions and to serving our nation’s Catholic schools by providing a distinctly Catholic accreditation program.
