School Accreditation

With the development of the Christian education movement over the past quarter century, there has at the same time developed the need for assessing the quality of the educational programming in Christian schools. Therefore, a strong commitment has been made within the association to develop a program of voluntary school accreditation. Accreditation is viewed as one means for improving the quality of a school’s curricular and instructional programs. Accreditation never has and never will assure the educational quality of any school. It will, however, cause a Christian school to self-evaluate its educational process and to receive counsel from experienced Christian educators. The accreditation process will also help a Christian school identify its programs’ weaknesses and offer suggestions on how these areas can be strengthened. In this way, accreditation should assist a Christian school in enhancing its educational program.

In partnership with our national association, the AACS, we provide a West-Virginia recognized accreditation process for member schools. You can learn more about that process and access documents needed to begin by visiting the AACS website. You can do so by clicking on the icon below.
