Welcome to ACSI Higher Education

Institutions of Christian higher education have a crucial role in training future leaders, educators, and workers for service worldwide. They commendably fill this role and continue to meet the critical need for well-trained, biblically sound teachers, administrators, leaders, and others.

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.

Math Placement Exam—High School

I am looking for a standardized high school math placement exam that I can give to our International applicants in their home country before they arrive in the US. We are trying to determine their math placement before they arrive at our school.
School Sentries

Our school board is discussing/exploring the possibility of having armed school sentries—school personnel who are armed, but not openly, and without the identity of the armed personnel openly known. There are some people who are very much in favor of this and others very much opposed.
Parallel Translation Bibles

I am looking for a better resource for Bibles to use with our international students. I like them to have a parallel translation or "bilingual" Bible so that they can study the Scriptures in English and in their native language.
Higher Education Approval Program (HEAP)
The Higher Education Approval Program (HEAP) is offered to accredited ACSI member Christian liberal arts college, universities, and Bible colleges. Colleges and universities seeking to participate in the program must give evidence of a commitment to preparing teachers and administrators to serve in Christian schools and must show they are encouraging their graduates to prayerfully consider serving in Christian schools around the world.

49.1 Back to School—Round 2

The start of the school year is akin to New Year’s Day: it’s a new beginning, and you have no idea what the days ahead will bring. For that reason, it’s a great time to re-center on God. I’ve invited Jay Ferguson, headmaster of Grace Community School (Tyler, Texas), to address some ideas on keeping a godly perspective this year. —Dan

48.9 Essential Training Areas for Children 2

Christian schools are most effective when they partner with parents in discipling their children. In Christian School Comment 48.8, Dr. Larry Taylor shared the first part of his model for deliberately training children. I encourage you to read it if you haven’t, and to enjoy this second part. —Dan
