The Florida Coalition of Christian Private School Accreditation, Inc. (FCCPSA) was founded and continues to be led by men and women who believe that parents are responsible to direct the education of their children in all areas of life, including academics. Our mission is to encourage and help in the development of the Christian Private Schools and Faith-Based Child Care Facilities throughout the State of Florida, that partner with those parents on a daily basis.
Obtaining the status of being a fully Accredited School displays to the world that a school has demonstrated excellence in academics. The accreditation process is designed to improve the educational and spiritual quality in private schools regardless of size.
If your school sees the need for accreditation as an organizational witness of credibility, the FCCPSA is a great place to start. Our organization offers accreditation based on the concept of voluntary peer recognition. In other words, institutions sharing common purposes and distinctions are better able to assist one another in achieving the standards for academic excellence and responsiveness to their respective hometowns, and the nation.
While the state of Florida does not accredit private schools or endorse private school accrediting associations, the FCCPSA has been reviewed by a committee of Florida college registrars and has been listed as an acceptable accrediting body.
The Administrator Manuals developed by the FCCPSA have become an indispensable resource for our member schools. New schools or administrators will find the wealth of knowledge and resources invaluable. Experienced administrators depend on the updated manuals to keep them abreast of the ever-changes issues they face daily.
Workshops are scheduled twice each year for both private schools, and child care facilities. From legislative updates to small group round table events, there is no subsitute for face-to- face learning, and the fellowship that develops among Christians who labor in the same field.
