American Elementary (or Primary) Curriculum - Although the elementary level US curriculum varies from state to state, it generally encompasses basic subjects with a heavy emphasis on reading, writing and arithmetic. Includes to different degrees ((usually dictated by the state or school board) instruction in the fundamentals of English (spelling, grammar, writing, reading), social studies ( including local, state, national and world history, civics), science (biology, physical science, ecology, physiology), maths (arithmetic, rudimentary algebra), physical education, fine arts etc.

Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSACS or MSA) - Although definitely one of the six regional agencies authorised by the US Department of Education (which usually have ACS or CAS at the end of their acronym), this one usually goes by MSA (Middle States Association), or CSS-MSA (Commission on Secondary Schools- Middle States Association).
