The Sheffield School is proud to be accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) and licensed by the New York State Education Department.
New York State Education Department
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is one of the most respected education agencies in the United States. The Sheffield School is licensed under the demanding standards of NYSED, and all our programs are regularly reviewed and approved by NYSED, ensuring that we maintain the highest standards of education materials, student service and business practices. All Sheffield School teachers and key staff are licensed by NYSED. A full explanation of NYSED's requirements that pertain to Sheffield School is available in our catalog.
The Distance Education and Training Council is the nation’s premier accrediting organization for home-study schools. The Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a globally recognized accrediting agency, for online learning schools and distance education. Their rigorous evaluation process applies the same standards upheld by long-established "brick and mortar" institutions.
The DETC reviewed the manner in which we deliver our courses, the support that we provide each and every one of our students, and accepted us as one of their accredited members. Their conclusion: the Sheffield School’s programs continually meet, and regularly exceed, the DETC's exacting standards of excellence. To see our DETC consumer disclosure form, click here
