Accreditation & Memberships

The importance of accreditation is that it is an external, objective validation of school quality and student achievement that fosters continuous school improvement. Here at Florida Christian the process involves our entire FCS family. Administration, faculty, school board, parents, and students make contributions to the process. A school which wishes to be accredited applies to the state or regional association as a candidate for accreditation. That sets in motion a multi-year process involving a self-study by the institution together with a final review and report to the accrediting association. The self-study follows procedures and processes set forth by the accrediting commission. It is thorough, detailed and a blueprint both for accreditation and future success. The process is repeated on a cycle of years, (typically 5 – 7 years). Accreditation gives us the assurance that an independent, objective peer review of the school has been performed. Accreditation reassures us and our parents that the school has a plan in place to achieve its vision and attain its objectives. Accreditation is one more box that parents can check as they review schools which the feel might be a good fit for their children.
