Key Benefits of Accreditation
- Students graduating from accredited Christian schools qualify for admission to most colleges and universities, and credits transfer between schools nationally and internationally.
- The accreditation process (and annual renewals) employ both self-assessment and peer reviews to help you evaluate whether our school is fulfilling its mission and meeting academic standards established by the international school community.
- Instruction at our school will improve through a continuous process of self-assessment designed to result in increased student achievement.
Accreditation is a great way to assess a school’s performance in foundational areas of Christian education:
Bible Knowledge and Biblical Worldview
Life Skills and Practical Application of Knowledge
Character Building and Spiritual Formation
