"ACSI certification matters. An educator carrying ACSI certification is more likely to have a more biblical view of God, man, and ethics."Doctoral Dissertation by Dr. Mitch Evans, Southeastern Seminary, Wake Forest, NC. 2015.
The purpose of ACSI Certification is to strengthen Christian schools by credentialing educators who meet established professional and biblical requirements which promotes continued professional learning and increased effectiveness. Establishing and maintaining the certification of staff and administration is an essential step toward professional credibility and growth. Education is a process. Just as we encourage our students to grow and become life–long learners, we want to set the same example as their teachers and leaders.
ACSI certification establishes a framework for professional growth to occur over time, just like continuous school improvement.
