Seeking the Best of Two Worlds


Accreditation is a voluntary commitment on the part of a school to achieve high standards, engage in a continuous process of school improvement, and to participate in quality assurance reviews.  The hallmark of accreditation is that a school represents itself honestly and thus can be trusted.  Accredited schools earn the trust of parents and the public because of their quality and because they consistently act in a professional manner.

MSA Candidacy

We are pleased to announce that Hayah has become a candidate school for MSA (Middle States Association) accreditation. This certification, alongside our existing accreditation with AdvancED until 2020, will affirm that the school is providing quality in its educational programs, services, activities, and resources as expected by its stakeholders and endorsed by the education world. During the 2017-18 school year, Hayah will be engaged in a comprehensive self-study and evaluation of our school against the Middle States Standards for Accreditation. Parents, students and staff were involved last spring in completing surveys to rate the school against indicators of quality outlined by MSA. The data from those surveys will serve as an important source of insight into the strengths and needs of the school. As a final step to full accreditation, in Fall 2018 we will host an authorization team from MSA to review our findings, school goals and action plans.


The school is accredited under the name of Hayah International School by the AdvancED-North Central Association ( Hayah International School is also authorized to operate as an international school by the Ministry of Education of Egypt, license number 312.
