Accreditation reflects a school’s trustworthiness in the process of providing a quality educational program. Therefore, Christian Academy of America makes every effort to meet or exceed state and national educational guidelines. CAA is accredited both regionally and nationally, is registered as a private school with the state of Texas, and has been serving families for over thirty years. Additionally, CAA has partnered with various organizations to expand the opportunities and resources available to our students.
The Texas Private School Accreditation Commission (TEPSAC) helps ensure quality in private schools by monitoring and approving organizations that accredit the various non-public elementary and secondary educational institutions in the state of Texas. The relationship of TEPSAC with the State Commissioner of Education allows for activities related to accredited non-public schools, including but not limited to the transferability of student credits earned in accredited non-public schools to Texas public schools.
CAA is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools/Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA/CESS). MSA is a regional accrediting association that accredits both public and non-public educational institutions. Programs of study accredited by MSA are part of an international educational network whose members have demonstrated success in educating students. MSA has worldwide recognition as a symbol of quality academic schools, and rigorous standards of accreditation provide the following direct benefits for parents and students:
Christian Academy of America is nationally accredited by the National Association of Private Schools (NAPS). NAPS is an independent educational association consisting of private school administrators and Christian educators from across the United States and Canada. NAPS is dedicated to recognizing and improving the spiritual and educational quality of private and Christian schools that excel in the nontraditional private school environment. Jonathan Pulaski, administrator at Christian Academy of America, is privileged to serve on the NAPS Board of Directors.
The Association of Christian Teachers and Schools (ACTS) is a non-profit organization that strives to set new standards of Christ-centered academic excellence while assisting Christian schools to realize the highest level of educational credibility. ACTS is passionately committed to a biblical worldview that is consistent with God’s Word, building partnerships with Christian schools, and serving current and prospective members with resources, consulting, advice, and mentoring.
The National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA) seeks to promote and support independent and autonomous accrediting associations serving private early childhood, elementary, and secondary schools that are committed to quality educational programs. NCPSA recognizes quality schools & accreditors worldwide and serves as a national review panel for the standards and review procedures of private school accrediting associations.
Christian Academy of America graduates have entered hundreds of Colleges and Universities
including community, regional, private and state colleges, technical schools, U.S. Military
Academies (including West Point) and several branches of the Military.
Accreditation does not guarantee entrance into any College or University, Technical
School, Military Academy, or Branch of Military Service. Furthermore, accreditation
does not guarantee the transferring of high school credits from one school to another.
The Texas Private Schools Association (TPSA) is a statewide organization representing more than 800 accredited private schools and 250,000 students throughout the state of Texas.
