Accreditation Commission Approves 116 CSI Member Schools

We are excited to announce that the CSI Accreditation Commission recently renewed and approved accreditation status for 116 CSI member schools in the US.

On the afternoons of July 14 and 15, 2020, six members of the CSI Accreditation Commission and two members of our Accreditation team met together over Zoom to renew and initially approve the accreditation status of 116 CSI member schools. In addition, there are currently eighteen schools who have been granted accreditation candidacy status. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fourteen schools had to delay their accreditation site visits which had been scheduled for the spring semester. We are so excited and thankful to God that the number of schools accredited through Christian Schools International continues to grow, with 134 schools currently accredited or in the process of doing so.

The CSI accreditation process, which is firmly grounded in a reformed transformational worldview, is focused on a continual school improvement process, allowing CSI to support schools in their journeys toward excellence in implementing their Christian missions.

“The Commission members and our team were so impressed with the amount of evidence provided by the schools of their continued work in addressing their school improvement goals even in the midst of the challenging circumstances of this past spring,” expressed Sheryl Jo, CSI director of school improvement. “It was such a blessing to see the creativity, organization, and dedication of staff and administration who worked together so diligently to effectively serve students and their families. As difficult as it was, the ability to encourage Christian community and maintain high academic standards during a time of campus closures and distance learning also became an opportunity for CSI schools to shine.”

Please join us in congratulating these 116 schools, located in 29 states as well as in Washington, DC and the Dominican Republic, for their continued commitment to working toward excellence in fulfilling the missions of their schools even during trying circumstances.

Prepping 116 accreditation certificates to be mailed—evidence of hours and hours of diligent work by our accredited schools to grow and improve their missions for Christ.
