How ACSI Accreditation Fosters the Ongoing Success of Students

As one of the premier private schools in Clearwater, FL, Lakeside Christian School serves our students, their families, and the community as a whole by providing our students with the education and tools they need to become the leaders of tomorrow. We are accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and have been serving Clearwater since 1975.

The Benefits of ACSI Accreditation

ACSI accreditation is a widely recognized symbol of excellence bestowed exclusively on schools who commit themselves to meeting an array of rigorous standards. Parents who want their children to benefit from a comprehensive Christian education can rest assured that an ACSI-accredited school will go above and beyond to instill a sense of wonder in your children to inspire a lifelong love of learning. And that’s only the beginning. ACSI accreditation also benefits your child because:

  • Accredited Christian schools are eligible for state funding.
  • Classroom credits transfer between schools on a national and international level.
  • Graduating from an accredited Christian school qualifies for admission to public and private colleges and universities.
  • Accredited Christian schools must renew their status annually through a series of self-assessments and peer reviews which ensure that they are meeting their obligations to their students. This continuous process helps schools improve steadily over time to foster student achievement.

The Value of a Christian Education

When choosing a Clearwater private school to enroll your child in, it’s important to consider not only the quality of your child’s education but also to assess the spiritual mission of the schools you are considering. ACSI accreditation ensures that your child’s school is fully committed to meeting both of these goals.

“I cannot think of any action taken by a school that produces more total school benefit than the decision to attain accreditation status,” said Ken Tanis, Headmaster Emeritus of Delaware County Christian Schools. “Curriculum quality is strengthened, school policies are refined, student achievement enhanced, and future directions intensified. Without accreditation, the attainment of overall excellence for a Christian school is difficult.”

The ACSI accreditation ensures that your children develop an enhanced knowledge of the Bible, cultivate a biblical worldview, improve academic competency, learn life skills, utilize practical applications of knowledge, and build character while strengthening their spiritual beliefs.
