The New England Association of School and Colleges is an entity that accredits educational centers in more than 70 countries, applying criteria and examination procedures equivalent to those of the United States.

NEASC connects and serves more than 1,500 public, independent, and international schools in the US and around the world. Founded in 1885, it has been working to establish and maintain high standards for all levels of education longer than any other accrediting agency in the United States.

NEASC accreditation attests to the high quality and integrity of a school.



NEASC is an advocate of educational quality and its ongoing improvement; it’s purposes are exclusively educational. It serves the public interest, the educational community, and the students within the educational system by:


Establishing and maintaining high standards of educational excellence


Providing a framework for institutional self-reflection and objective peer review

Serving as a resource and support for ongoing, meaningful whole-school improvement and growth.


Drawing upon its considerable experience, NEASC serves as a public policy resource on issues related to the condition of education in New England, the US, and in the international learning communities it serves. Professional staff is available to ensure full participation at all levels ranging from accreditation to educational collaborations that strengthen education. The Association is a private, nonprofit corporation that adheres to fundamental principles of fairness and non-discrimination, thus NEASC is uniquely positioned to work in partnership with other organizations on a regional, national, and international scale as it works to sustain and advance the quality of education for all students.

La Estrella del Pez Luna obtained the final accreditation in June 2020, after a quick process in which it proved to meet the requirements imposed by the NEASC.
