Called: Taking Up the Cause of Christian Education

Michael McNabb swore he was not going to be a teacher. As a young man, he planned to get a science education and work in the oil industry near his home city of Houston. What he didn’t plan on was the tug toward ministry he began to feel when he went away to college.

Christian Schools Gain Exposure in Their Communities

It can happen at any school: the staff is hired for the next year, the curriculum established, the textbooks purchased... but are there new families? If parents of potential new students don’t hear about the school, enrollment will inevitably reflect it. So how can Christian schools get the word out?

Leading 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.

Making Christ-centered education available and obtainable

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.

ACSI Statement on Allen, Texas Shooting

May 8, 2023, 10:41 AM by Caitlyn Harding

Our hearts are heavy to see yet another shooting, this one in Texas this weekend. Personally, this strikes too close to home impacting an ACSI Member Christian school community where I served for more than 20 years. In times like these, we cling to the hope found only in Jesus Christ who provides peace amidst cultural chaos. We know God cares for all involved and loves the world so much (1 Peter 5:7, John 3:16). Let’s pray for the injured, the innocent lives lost, and the families forever changed by this tragic, senseless act of violence. May God’s peace envelop those impacted in the days to come. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4

Dr. Larry Taylor, ACSI President & CEO
