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.

Preschool Teacher Observation Form

Does anyone have a good teacher observation form you use when it is time for yearly teacher observations?
Standardized Assessment of MS/HS Bible Curriculum

I am interested to find out how different school assess Bible at the middle school and high school level. Which standardized test do you use for MS and HS Bible assessment? Do you assess at every grade level in middle school and high school? Does anyone conduct a comprehensive assessment at the end of the senior year as a high school exit exam? Are there ACSI standards in determining which grades need to assess Bible?
International Art Shows

I would like to join an international Art show and only see them in the USA based on regions. Can I join since I am from America? Can anyone tell me how I can start an International one so we can all see art from around the world? Let's glorify God in Art—Renee Smith at Hope International School in Cambodia
