At this time we are researching accreditation options but are not making that a requirement or litmus test for success. Our ultimate goal is is to prepare students for life with a foundation in Orthodox Theological Studies. Accreditation is not more important than the spirit of what we are trying to do and the cost to do it.


SAAOT is not required to have accreditation due to California State Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009, California Education Code (CEC) Section 94874 (e) of the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE).
