The Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS) is a voluntary, service providing association of Christian schools, Christian colleges and universities, and homeschool groups. Started in 1968, it is the oldest, state-level association of Christian schools in the nation.
Accreditation and Co-Accreditation.
FACCS offers schools a quality accreditation based on nationally recognized standards. Once a qualifying school has attained a full accreditation status, they may apply for expanded national and international co-accreditations through our association with the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA) & the Commission on International and TransRegional Accreditation (CITA) protocols.
Professional Educator Certification
FACCS Teacher and Administrator certification provides the individual with a professional credential within the Christian school. The public relations benefit to FACCS member schools will work to attract and keep qualified staff, families, and students.
FACCS offers an annual convention and conferences for teachers and administrators, online seminars, and cooperative efforts with member Christian colleges as a means toward the professional development of staff.
