Accreditation is important to us as we want you to know that we meet (and exceed) rigorous educational requirements.

Association of Reformed Theological Seminaries (ARTS)

Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary has been fully accredited by the Association of Reformed Theological Seminaries (ARTS), an organization of about ten North American seminaries which adhere to either the Three Forms of Unity or the Westminster Standards.
