Allied Schools is a for-profit secondary and post-secondary educational services company founded in 1992. The company markets its certificate and diploma courses to working professionals, stay-at-home parents, military service members and disabled individuals to obtain training and credentials for career advancement, professional development or personal growth through distance education.

Allied is nationally accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council [1]. The Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency.

Accreditation[edit]

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[edit]

Allied Schools began in 1979 through Ashley Crown Systems, Inc., a publishing company providing services for education vendors. In 1992, Allied Schools developed vocational training courses through distance learning platforms starting in the real estate industry. By January 1996, Allied Schools launched a fully integrated online school website, complete with an in-house developed student learning platform through alliedschools[dot]com.

Allied American University[edit]

Allied American University is a division of Allied Business Schools, Inc. for its online university offering associate and bachelor's degrees.

Allied American University is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council. Allied American University received its accreditation in June 2008, making it one of the DETC's most recently accredited online schools.[4]
