ACSI's Foundational 3 Pillars:

Advancing

pillar_logoLeading Christ-centered education toward excellence and flourishing

We want all schools to aspire to, achieve, and remain committed to a biblically-based philosophy of education, standards that are measurable, and flourishing-related criteria. ACSI strives to lead, support, and serve Christian schools, and educators, by placing them on a path of growth and flourishing using the research-based Flourishing Schools Initiative. This model should link leadership and faculty professional development accreditation, and every culture-driving component of a school. A common philosophy, and a flourishing-based metric, would unify our efforts of advancing Christian schools and educators.

Access

ACSI is committed to making Kingdom education available to as many children and families as desire it, believing that such an education offers students an opportunity to grow in a loving relationship with their Creator, come to know His saving work through Jesus, and flourish in His Ephesians 2:10 calling for their lives. This commitment requires removing barriers to access for those who traditionally have not benefited from Christian school, as well as seeking out new ways to create access points to Kingdom education and the ability to thrive and be successful in that education—for all those who desire it.


Advocacy

As the largest evangelical Christian school association in the world, ACSI is by default viewed as the spokesperson for Christian schooling in the public square. In order to discharge this responsibility with excellence and seasoned speech (Colossians 4:6), and to equip our member schools to do the same, ACSI must invest in developing public-facing resources and forming strategic relationships with those working in the area of advocacy for Christian Education and for religious liberty.

Reflections of a School Counselor

NANCY GILLESPIE

I will never forget the date: January 14, 2005. This was the day that I was rushed to the hospital and found out that I had just barely survived a pulmonary embolism. It was a significant day in my faith journey, as I knew that God was trying to get my attention. He had given me a second chance at life, and I did not want to take that for granted. I was not quite sure what was coming, but I knew that change was around the corner. Shortly after that day, I decided to go back to school and pursue my master’s degree in counselor education so that I could become a school counselor.

Facilitating Student Rest

Facilitating Student Rest

DR. JOHN STUBBLEFIELD

As Christian educators, we are charged with providing for the spiritual, mental, and physical well-being of the students entrusted to our care. Often, our schools do an outstanding job of providing students with excellent academic instruction built upon the foundation of God’s Word, but we sometimes fall short of fostering an environment that fully addresses their physical needs, especially in the area of sufficient student rest.
