Academic discovery in the framework of faith

The member schools of the National Christian School Association are not-for-profit and independently operated in most cases by a self-perpetuating board. Students of all faiths who are in agreement with the mission and philosophy of the school are welcome to apply to NCSA schools.The National Christian School Association is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics, the Census Bureau and the Council for American Private Education (CAPE).  The NCSA is a founding member of the Coalition of Christian School Accreditors. The NCSA’s accrediting process is recognized by partnerships with the regional accrediting associations and by state departments of education, where available and applicable and by the Office of Non-Public Education in the U.S. Department of Education. The member schools of the NCSA meet in convention each March.
