Cooper City Christian Academy Earns SACS CASI Accreditation

(Cooper City, FL – Aug. 3rd, 2015) – Cooper City Christian Academy announced today that they have earned accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED. This action was taken at the AdvancED Accreditation Commission meeting held on June 25th, 2015.

SACS CASI provides nationally-recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet SACS CASI’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement.

“Accreditation demonstrates to our students, parents and community that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation staffed by highly qualified educators,” stated Executive Pastor Paul Volan.

SACS CASI accreditation is recognized across state lines, which not only eases the transfer process as students move from accredited school to accredited school but also assures parents that the school is meeting nationally accepted standards for quality and successful professional practice.

Dr. Mark Elgart, President/CEO of AdvancED, the parent organization of SACS CASI, stated, “SACS CASI Accreditation is a rigorous process that focuses the entire school on the primary goal of creating lifelong learners. <Insert name of school> is to be commended for engaging in this process and demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement.”

The FCCPSA grants accreditation to qualified Christian private schools, issues Certificates of Accreditation / Inspection for faith-based child care facilities. In addition the FCCPSA publishes Administrator Manuals, provides training, resources, legislative updates, activity insurance, testing and fellowship for educators throughout the state of Florida.

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.

From Deuteronomy 6:5-7 and Proverbs 22:6 in the Old Testament to Ephesians 6:4 in the New Testament, God repeatedly gives direction to the parents on the academic, moral and spiritual education of children. Our mission is to encourage and help in the development of the Christian Traditional and Non-traditional Private Schools throughout the State of Florida for those who have chosen to educate their children under the authority of a private school rather than registering their children under the superintendent in their County. It is the parent’s decision where the teaching takes place, whether at the school’s physical location or at the parent’s home.
