Rocky Mountain Accreditation

Accreditation by a well-recognized agency is a seal of quality on an educational organization. For ACSI schools, accreditation validates their quality and verifies they are striving for excellence based on a solid Christian philosophy of education foundation. The current ACSI accreditation protocol, REACH (Reaching for Excellence through Accreditation and Continuous improvement for Higher achievement) is unique in two major ways:  

  • It probes the spiritual aspects of each component of the organization
  • It addresses the educational quality and integrity of the organization


Currently, ACSI accreditation is managed through each ACSI regional office. Whether your school is a standalone preschool or a combined school including early education to high school, the ACSI REACH tool will help you begin. Interested in dual or joint accreditation? Schools that wish to obtain joint accreditation with ACSI and another recognized agency should notify the ACSI regional office upon application.

The Process:

  • Candidate Status Visit
  • Self-Study
  • Team Visit
  • Regional Accreditation Commission
  • Maintaining Accreditation
