Molloy has received accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) is “a non-governmental, nonprofit, peer-administered organization of diverse educational institutions committed to ensuring that students in accredited schools are receiving the highest quality education.” A third-party entity, the MSA sent “objective, non-judgmental” fellow educators to observe Molloy and discuss various objectives and key concepts that will guarantee a top-tier education to all students.
During the accreditation process, members of the MSA evaluated Molloy’s facilities, financial resources, technology, and other qualities of student and faculty life, as well as instructional methods, curriculum, and support services. Molloy met all MSA standards, marking it as an “Accredited Institution,” and then created action plans with the MSA team to continue serving our community to the best of our ability.
As a part of the accreditation process, the MSA spoke to various students and their parents who were asked to share their insights on Molloy. We as a community are proud to have heard quotes such as, “Molloy has helped my son grow into an amazing young man,” and, “The school provides endless opportunities.” Molloy’s accreditation officially began on January 1, 2023. As a school, we promise to uphold the expectations of all we serve, and we are confident that the next accreditation in seven years will be just as successful.
The AP Scholar award is a certificate given to students who score 3 or higher on three or more AP exams. In 2019, Molloy offered 14 AP courses and proudly recognized 81 AP Scholars. Now, in 2023, Molloy offers 20 AP courses and is excited to announce that we have 105 AP scholars! With a 29.6% increase in the number of scholars in just a few years, we cannot wait to see what can be accomplished in the future.
In addition to our AP courses, Molloy boasts an award-winning Virtual Enterprise business course, and a leading Computer Science & Engineering program, which affords students the opportunity to learn about Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing on the collegiate level. This serves as another avenue for Stanners to receive college credit before ever stepping foot on a campus.
We are incredibly proud of all our Stanners’ dedication to academic excellence.

In 2020, Newsweek announced its ranking of the top 5,000 STEM high schools for 2019, honoring excellence in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Archbishop Molloy High School placed in the top 8% of an original pool of over 30,000 high schools that were analyzed over a three-year period.
With its long history of reporting on scientific breakthroughs, technological revolutions, and societal challenges, Newsweek partnered with STEM.org to rank America’s Best STEM High Schools. The list includes schools in every region of the country that offer skilled teachers who keep up with developments in these fields and who create dynamic learning environments to engage their students.
The top 5,000 schools were curated from STEM.org Educational Research™ (SER) using a proprietary scoring logic that took into consideration a broad set of quantitative and qualitative data inputs collected from Q2 2015–Q3 2019. The purpose was to determine which primary/secondary institutions in America best offer students experiences in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)—as defined by the Congressional Research Service—while preparing them for post‐secondary outcomes. Additional factors, including affluence and median household income, were taken into consideration in compiling the rankings.
