is the act of certifying that an educational institution maintains suitable
standards; the granting of approval to an institution of learning by
an official review board after the school has met certain requirements.
Specifically, accreditation is the review of a school's course offerings
and procedures by a group of its peers to certify that that school is
meeting its own stated objectives and offering its students the education
it promises them.

Department of Education.
is “a review by your peers” that ensures that you are offering
a quality program. The U.S. Department of Education is not a peer of
Christian Leadership University.
accreditation is not necessary for the religious vocations we are training
people in, which include: Biblical Studies, Christian Arts, Christian
Counseling, Christian Entrepreneurship, Christian Leadership, Divine
Healing, Divinity, Intercessory Prayer, Ministry, Missions and Evangelism,
Pastoral Ministry, Prophetic Ministry, Theology, Worship Ministry, and
Youth Ministry. People can function and hold jobs in all of these professions
without government-recognized accreditation.
seeking employment in government-licensed positions such as public school
teachers, state-licensed psychologists or psychiatrists, and non-church-related
counselors definitely need government-recognized accredited degrees.
Generally, people working in ministry positions do not need a government-accredited
degree. In fact, a number of churches take a stand against the Church
voluntarily placing itself under government regulations.
