Hi Josh, There is no such thing as most accredited. A school is either accredited or it is not. The best thing to do is decide what type of setting you want to be in, a small university, medium or large. Then think about location and then just explore the options. Just because a school is ranked higher does not mean it will be a good fit for you. Research the schools and see how they actually approach the teaching of architecture and you may find certain types of programs more interesting to you than others.
Some schools do not offer a Bachelor of Architecture which is what you would want if you want to practice architecture without going to grad school. Typically a BArch is a 5 year program but there maybe one or two that do it in 4 years. A Bachelor of Science in Architecture is a 4 year program but you will be required to go to grad school to become an architect if you went that route which is what Wash U in St. Louis offers which was one of the Universities Safwan mentioned above, so be careful.
I would not trust a list trust what you read about each program and how you see yourself fitting in. Good Luck!

Hi Josh! Here's a link to Niche. They compile data every year on the best colleges around the world and are a good reference for college research. The top 5 colleges they have listed for architecture are Rice University, Cornell University, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Southern California, and Yale University.
The website gives you reasons why so they rank the colleges so I would definitely give it a read
