Accreditation

The Association of Christian Schools International: "ACSI is a service organization serving Christian schools across the United States and around the world. ACSI is not a member or part of any other organization. Each member school or college retains its individual distinctives and operating independence. Each member school receives a certificate of membership for display in the school office. Participation in any or all of the services of ACSI is voluntary" (from ACSI publication).

Membership

Providence Academy is a charter member of The Association of Classical and Christian Schools (ACCS). Providence Academy adheres to the mission statement of this organization:

The primary mission of this association is to promote, establish, and equip schools committed to a classical approach to education in the light of a Christian worldview grounded in the Old and New Testament Scriptures. The mission of the association is both to promote the classical approach and to provide accountability for member schools to ensure that our cultural heritage is not lost again. This mission will be accomplished through the work of the Association of Classical and Christian Schools. Through these various means, ACCS seeks to set an educational standard for a unified and directed approach to classical and Christian learning.

Our mission is also to equip schools in teaching subjects through the methodology known as the Trivium (grammar, logic, and rhetoric), the educational foundation of our Western culture. We believe that God will bless this approach as He has in the past, as long as it follows the principles set forth in His Word.
