Merchant Marine Academy Accreditation Restored

Full accreditation has been restored to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, nearly a year and a half after it was placed on warning for missing five of 14 academic benchmarks, academy officials said.

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education, a Philadelphia-based nongovernmental group that assesses the performance of educational institutions, acted to remove the warning on Nov. 16, citing the school’s compliance with standards for institutional planning and the allocation of its resources, according to a Middle States letter to the academy that was published on the school’s website Monday.
