WHY IT MATTERS

Spiritual:

  • ACSI accredited schools have remained the most theologically stable and consistent over the past five years.**
  • Christian school graduates are significantly more likely to pray and read Scripture both alone and with a spouse and children.*
  • ACSI accredited schools have these top priorities: for students to have a close, personal relationship with God and for students to develop a Christian worldview.**

Academic

  • On average, ACSI accredited schools require more rigorous course loads in math, science, English, languages, civics, social studies, art or music, and Bible than all other programs surveyed.**
  • Since 1974 ACSI schools have scored significantly higher than the national norm in every grade level on a national achievement test.
  • ACSI school graduates attend college at a significantly higher rate than the national average (86 percent compared with 68 percent).

Cultural

  • Christian school graduates give more of their time to volunteer in their congregations, on mission trips, and on relief/aid trips.*
  • Christian school graduates donate significantly more money to their churches, religious causes, and other charitable causes overall.*
