About ACSI

ACSI Home / About ACSI

For more than 40 years, ACSI has faithfully lived out its mission around the world:

To strengthen Christian schools and equip Christian educators worldwide as they prepare students academically and inspire them to become devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Since our founding in 1978, our vision has steadfastly desired that:

ACSI will become a leading international organization that promotes Christian education and provides training and resources to Christian schools and Christian educators.

As our mission continues, ACSI is renewing our commitment to Christian schools and educators to help them deal with today’s challenging times—characterized by seismic cultural shifts and disruption. 

Today and into the future we will continue to assist, encourage and develop:

  • Schools that contribute to the public good through effective teaching and learning and that are biblically sound, academically rigorous, socially engaged, and culturally relevant; and
  • Educators who embody a biblical worldview, engage in transformational teaching and disciplining, and embrace personal and professional growth.

Over the past two years, ACSI has diligently sought the Lord's guidance through prayer, and is now positioning everything under three pillars: Advancing, Access and Advocacy. 

pillar_logoADVANCING – Leading Christ-centered education toward excellence and flourishing

ACCESS – Making Christ-centered education available and obtainable

ADVOCACY – Promoting and protecting Christ-centered education for today and tomorrow

This will allow ACSI to be laser-focused on promoting excellence in Kingdom education around the world in the months and years to come.

We invite you to join us as together, we advance the cause of Kingdom Education today and into the future.
