The Association of Christian Schools International was founded in 1978, the outgrowth of a merger of three associations: The National Christian School Education Association (NCSEA), The Ohio Association of Christian Schools (OACS) and the Western Association of Christian Schools (WACS). Today, ACSI’s membership includes more than 5,000 schools from approximately 100 countries with an enrollment of more than one million students. Schools that apply for ACSI accreditation must commit to self-study and analysis; a comparison to established standards; an assessment of the school mission; a commitment to quality education; and a willingness to be accountable. The ACSI accreditation program was one of the first programs to be officially recognized by the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA). CLCS Christian School is a member in good standing of ACSI.


The International Christian Accrediting Association first awarded accreditation in 1987. ICAA was developed in a pilot program via the Oral Roberts University Educational Fellowship. As of January 2000, more than 150 elementary/secondary schools were involved at some stage of the ICAA accreditation process. The purpose of ICAA is to assist in continual improvement for Christian schools that exhibit credibility of performance, integrity and quality. ICAA is both evaluative and educative. In the evaluation process, the Association has established standards and criteria by which it reviews its members and determines their advancement to different status levels of accreditation. In the educative process, ICAA provides materials, workshops, seminars and access to Christian professional educators to assist each school develop quality Christian educational programs. CLCS earned ICAA accreditation in 2000, and re-accreditation in 2005 and 2010.
