Accreditation

Allied Schools has been granted national accreditation by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC).

Allied National High School has received regional accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges [2]. Allied National High School is also regionally accredited by The Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation(CITA), an accrediting organization dedicated to advancing the quality of education through accreditation.[1]

DETC is focused on accrediting distance learning and is a national accreditor which differs from the more widely recognized and prestigious regional accreditation. Regionally accredited schools may accept and recognize the accreditations of the DETC, but others may not.[2][3]

History

The company was founded in 1992 by current Chairman of the Board Jay Achenbach and focused exclusively on training future real estate agents in California. Today, Allied Schools is operated by Jay Achenbach's son, George Achenbach, who is Board of Directors of the school and is responsible for approximately 350 employees and more than 25 different career courses.
