ACSI Dual Membership
U.S. member schools of Christian Schools International (CSI) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) have the opportunity for full membership in both organizations. Each organization demonstrates commitment to partnering by offering a 25 percent dues discount to dual members.
Though each organization needs to remain independent to serve its members well, partnership allows both to be more capable of advancing Christian education locally and globally.
