AIRC accreditation signifies that a strict set of business and operational standards have been met or exceeded. The months of hard work and preparation to earn this invaluable certification serve to further validate the AOA core values by which we operate: Integrity, Commitment and Service. AOA will maintain the highest standards while helping families and young adults pursue their hopes and dreams of a quality educational opportunity in the USA.
Comments about AOA for the American International Recruitment Council.
AOA is partnered with the Counsel on Educational Standards & Accountability (CESA).
Dr. Charles Glenn of Boston University suggests that faith-based schools who are clear about what they stand for are successful because they have a clear vision for education. This vision includes a focus upon virtues that pervade all activities within the religious school. Likewise, this vision includes an understanding that all that is done within these schools is done with excellence, as if done unto God.
CESA understands that the need for high quality Christian schools is compelling. Enabling students to learn within the framework of this religious belief system is a necessity for families who value such a distinct and valuable education. Therefore, providing high standard education to students has been and must remain a characteristic of all faith-based schools.
AOA is approved and certified by CSIET! To obtain and keep certification, agencies must have proper processes in place to support families, students, and partner schools. AOA is audited annually for these standards. AOA first gained CSIET approval in April 2016. AOA is excited about the legitimacy this adds to our brand name, both domestically and internationally. Families and schools seeking the best organizations with which to do business, often look for validation of quality and delivery of services. AOA has it!
