A key part of ACSI's mission is to strengthen schools, and we do that by offering a variety of programs. You'll find links to information about each of them here, along with information on our customized services for early education and higher education programs.

 

Accreditation

Accreditation with ACSI engages schools in a vigorous, holistic process of organizational appraisal and improvement that engages every school constituent. Ours is a highly regarded Christian program for member schools.

Early Education Services

ACSI's Early Education Department works with early education schools to strengthen programs and equip early educators as they prepare young children (ages birth through year five) spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively and influence children to love and follow Jesus Christ.

A.C.E. Student Success Center

The ACSI A.C.E. Student Success Center (formerly Urban School Services) exists to strengthen Christian schools and equip Christian educators as they endeavor to address the plight of educationally disenfranchised children. The goal is to provide all children with an education that is distinctly Christian.

International Student Program

ACSI is privileged to be a part of God's robust worldwide movement in Christian schooling. The Global department is focused on serving two different international elements.

"International" Christian schools are those located outside of the U.S. that serve the expatriate community and often, a portion of the host country population. These schools use curricular programs originating outside their host country, employ internationally educated faculty, and specifically develop programs that prepare students for tertiary education outside the host country. Frequently, instruction is in English with a Western-style curriculum. The ACSI International School office serves international schools located in more than 77 countries from ACSI headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Higher Education

As colleges and universities seek to be effective in preparing young hearts and minds for their vocations, ACSI desires to assist in that process and partner with higher education institutions worldwide. ACSI membership offers Christian colleges and universities the opportunity to engage their EE–12 colleagues in a variety of settings. ACSI member colleges cooperate in the Distinguished Christian High School Student Program and undergraduate and graduate Higher Education Approval Programs.
