Association of Advanced Rabbinical and Talmudic Schools

The Association of Advanced Rabbinical and Talmudic Schools (AARTS) is a faith-based national accreditation association for Rabbinical and Talmudic schools. It is based in New York, NY and is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation [1] and United States Department of Education.[2]

In the field of Rabbinical and Talmudic education the association sees itself as both a gatekeeper and a historical authority. They aim to hold traditional thought in a modern world through balance of the old and new.[3]

Operations

AARTS is an independently run, non profit organization, made up of experts in the field of Rabbinical and Talmudic training, which sets educational standards in the field throughout the country. Both undergraduate and graduate programs are evaluated by the association. All of these programs must meet set standards in education, finance and graduate requirements in order to be considered for accreditation.[4][5]

Compared

Since AARTS meets Council for Higher Education Accreditation [6] and United States Department of Education[7] recognition criteria, AARTS standards correspond to those of regional accreditors. AARTS accreditation, however, does not guarantee regional accreditation and vice versa. Contrary to the principles laid out by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation in Transfer and the Public Interest: A Statement to the Community,[8] many regionally accredited institutions continue to base transfer credit decisions solely or primarily upon regional accreditation.
