E.A. Young Academy has met the criteria for educational quality established by Cognia (formerly the AdvancedED Accreditation Commission) and is accredited by the NCA Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, the Northwest Accreditation Commission and the SACS Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.
Accreditation requires a rigorous evaluation process that involves internal and external review.

An accredited school is equipped to better identify and implement strategies for improvement giving you peace of mind that your child is attending a school that cares about quality and ongoing progress.
E.A. Young is designated as a College Board AP Capstone™ Diploma school and was the first private school to offer the program in the state of Texas.
"AP Capstone™ diploma program uses an interdisciplinary approach to develop the critical thinking, research, collaboration, time management, and presentation skills students need for college-level work. The College Board developed the AP Capstone Diploma program at the request of higher education professionals, who saw a need for a systematic way for high school students to begin mastering these skills before college."
