The Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS) is an organization of seminaries and other graduate schools of theology.[1][2][3] ATS has its headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and has more than 270 member institutions.[4] It was founded in 1918.[5] ATS's stated mission is "to promote the improvement and enhancement of theological schools to the benefit of communities of faith and the broader public."[3]

The ATS Commission on Accrediting provides graduate schools of theology with accreditation.[6] It is recognized by both the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the United States Department of Education as an accrediting body.[1][2]
