In partnership with parents, CBA exists to inspire world changers through Christ-centered, intercultural, language immersion education. And CBA is growing! We want to make sure that we are doing everything we can to provide your child(ren) with the opportunity to flourish in their learning!
Therefore, we have embarked on a grand adventure: ACSI accreditation. ACSI stands for Association of Christian Schools International.
- Accreditation with ACSI engages schools in a vigorous process that looks at every area of the school
- The “accredited” seal designates a school that has met institutional standards of quality and verifies a commitment to strategic improvement and ongoing accountability
- Every step in the process is designed to be useful for driving improvement so students can truly flourish in their learning
- Accreditation is a great way to assess our school’s performance in foundational areas of education:
- Academic excellence
- Life skills and practical application of knowledge
- Character building and spiritual formation
- Bible knowledge and biblical worldview
- Teacher preparation
- Accreditation is important to the family, the students, and the school
- Accreditation by a well-recognized agency is a seal of approval on an educational organization – it helps everyone know if the school is meeting the standards of a quality education
- Parents seeking the best Christian education for their children know our school is committed to excellence
- The accreditation process and annual renewals help evaluate school leadership to know that they are fulfilling their mission and meeting established academic standards
- Instruction at our school will improve through a continuous process of self-assessment designed to result in increased student learning
- Students graduating from accredited schools qualify for admission to most colleges and universities, and credits transfer between schools nationally and internationally
What is involved in the process?
The accreditation process is a thorough examination and review of the entire program, judged against established standards.
The process includes a self-study, an evaluation, and implementation of a plan.
A self-study is completed by the school. Then, a visiting team of educators visits the school to examine the report and evaluate what was said against what they observe. Recommendations are given to the school for continued improvement and the cycle begins again.
The Accreditation process is integral to an ongoing process of institutional assessment, improvement, and development.
It is invigorating, demanding, and worthwhile.
You are worth it. Your children are worth it.
We look forward to working together with you to continue to grow.
