La Salle Academy has been granted accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools by demonstrating that it is effectively advancing the quality of educational experiences it offers its students and meets its responsibilities to the public and the profession of education, and complies with standards for accreditation that are established by the organization. 

Middle States accreditation standards are qualitative statements that reflect research-based best practices for schools.  These standards complement content area standards, which designate what students are expected to learn in various curriculum areas.
