Hellenic American Union Accreditation
The Hellenic American Union’s Center for Applied Linguistics and Language Studies (CALLS) is accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CAE) for the period August 2015 through August 2024 and agrees to uphold the CEA standards for English Language Programs and Institutions. CEA is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency for English language programs and institutions in the U.S..
The Commission has accredited the Hellenic American Union CALLS for the following programs:
The Hellenic American Union is one of over 250 worldwide organizations—and the only one in Greece—whose foreign language and teacher training programs are accredited by the CEA. The three Hellenic American Union programs were first accredited by CEA in 2009.
In earning accreditation for its programs, the Hellenic American Union joins the ranks of institutions such as Boston University, Georgetown University, and the University of Pennsylvania whose English-language programs have been similarly accredited.
CEA Accreditation Standards
The Commission on English Language Program Accreditation uses accreditation standards that offer an objective means to evaluate the quality of programs offered. These 52 quality standards cover areas such as:
- Facilities, Equipment, and Supplies
- Administrative and Fiscal Capacity
- Student Services
- Length and Structure of the Program of Study
- Student Achievement
- Student Complaints
After a rigorous review of an applying institution's processes and program content, CEA may accredit and make public those programs that meet these standards. The grant of accreditation acknowledges the high quality of English-language or other language-related programs, such as foreign language teacher training and foreign language courses, that a school offers.
