Torah Academy has earned accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Elementary Schools, principal Rabbi Shmuel Jablon announced last week in a newsletter.
This distinction validates the quality of the school, as well as its focus on strategic planning and school improvement, wrote Jablon. The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia and the Kohelet Foundation provided funds for the school to go through the two-year accreditation process.
Jablon said the school is on track to enroll 300 students in the coming academic year, which would be an increase of about 20 percent from three years ago.
Four-year-old, kindergarten and first-grade classes already have waiting lists.
