Congratulations are in order for thirteen CSI member schools who were approved for accreditation during the January 21, 2022 meeting of the CSI Accreditation Commission. Ten member schools received renewals of their accreditation upon the conclusion of their current five-year accreditation cycles. The Commission also approved the initial accreditations of three member schools after they hosted their first accreditation site visits.
After the delays and extensions of school site visits brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, it was a tremendous blessing for our accreditation teams to be back on campus again with our schools. While continuing to navigate unique and often challenging circumstances, these schools demonstrated the perseverance, faithfulness, and excellence which has been a hallmark of CSI schools during these difficult times. The Accreditation Commission praised these thirteen schools for their steadfastness in prioritizing continual school improvement and forward movement of their missions even in the midst of instructional conditions which often were less than ideal.
Schools accredited by CSI are now represented in twenty-eight states, plus the District of Columbia, the Dominican Republic, and Thailand. Please join us in congratulating the following thirteen schools on what they have achieved. To God be the glory!
