Our Existence

The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) strives to enable and equip Christian educators and schools worldwide to effectively educate children and young people with the mind of Christ. Thus, students will be prepared for life because Christ, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, possesses “all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3). The life and mind of Christ is nurtured in the lives of students through redemptive relationships with faculty, who recognize that reconciling the heart and mind to God is the foundation of their work.

To this end ACSI seeks to equip schools for greater effectiveness, year after year. The many programs and services we offer are intended to enrich the teaching of Truth-God’s Word revealed through Scripture as well as through creation. We seek to increase the vision for students’ intellectual development through Christian faculty who model a rigorous Christian mind in their teaching and leading. We believe that schools can increasingly achieve their vibrant mission as their operational practices grow in excellence.

The people of ACSI, in our Colorado Springs headquarters and the eighteen regional offices around the world, are eager to assist educators and schools in guiding their students to reach their full potential in Christ. We desire to provide the tools necessary to rekindle the vision, energize practices, and equip educators to achieve this goal.
