What are the main benefits of an accredited Christian school?

Accreditation is a great way to assess your school’s performance in foundational areas of Christian education: 

  • Bible Knowledge and Biblical Worldview 
  • Academic Excellence 
  • Life Skills and Practical Application of Knowledge 
  • Character building and Spiritual Formation.

Accreditation is a very involved lengthy process that a school voluntarily decides to do. It encourages ongoing improvement through continual self-assessment and systematic school development. So what are the benefits?

  • You are assured that the school is true to their mission and core values.
  • You are confident in the education your children are receiving because the school has been audited and has surpassed the important components of a quality education.
  • You know that the school values excellence in educating your children. Accreditation does not stop after they receive their certification. Schools that go through this process are interested in constantly improving the quality of education they provide. They are evaluated on a regular basis and work at improving based on feedback of the accreditation team.
  • As your children continue their education, accredited schools are recognized with confidence by other schools.
