Accreditation & Affiliations

The Universal American School, Kuwait is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

Accreditation is extremely important for your child because it proves there are operating protocols. More importantly, it validates there is a challenging or rigorous educational community that meets or exceeds an accrediting agency’s expectations.

A variety of accreditation agencies worldwide review schools and measures their attention to recognized educational standards and practice. You invest in a legitimate international school education by sending your child to an accredited school. Attentively adhering to standards ensures integrity and quality of programs expected by post-secondary institutions and makes the transition to university and college more seamless.

Graduates of an accredited school have a much higher probability of acceptance at top-tier universities in North American, Europe, and beyond. Based on UAS graduate data, approximately 60% of our students attend university in the USA and Canada and 10-15% in Europe. This data strongly supports our school’s mission and goals.

Our recent re-accreditation, in the Spring of 2021, demonstrates the UAS ability to meet its goals through dedicated leadership and a sound commitment by faculty and staff to serve our Mission.  The accreditation re-affirms that despite challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic, UAS is attending to the highest standards of international education and service to our learning community.
