Accreditation

Milpitas Christian Schools holds dual accreditation by two highly-regarded accreditation organizations. Following our comprehensive review in March 2019, we anticipate formally receiving a full "six year" certification from both ACSI and WASC later this year.

Why WASC Accreditation?
The Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is a world-renowned accrediting association that extends its services to over 5,000 public, independent, church-related, and proprietary pre-K-12 and adults schools in the California, Hawaii, Guam, Asia, the Pacific Region, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe.

Our WASC accreditation:
  • Assures a school community that the school is a trustworthy institution for student learning in a global society
  • Validates the integrity of the school's program and transcripts worldwide for university acceptance
  • Fosters the ongoing improvement to support student learning

Why ACSI (Christian) Accreditation?

The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) was founded in 1978 when several regional U.S. school associations joined, becoming a united voice to advance excellence in Christian education. The leaders’ vision was to inspire, challenge, and resource educators and schools. First headquartered in La Habra, California, ACSI moved to an expanded facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 1994. Today, ACSI serves nearly 24,000 schools in more than 100 countries.

The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) is the leading international organization the promotes Christian education that contribute to the public good through effective teaching that is biblically sound, academically rigorous, socially engaged , and culturally relevant. 

ACSI accreditation assures parents that our school's foundation is based upon:
  • Bible knowledge and Biblical worldview
  • Academic excellence
  • Life skills and practical application of knowledge
  • Character building and spiritual formation

Students who take courses at MCS will have their coursework recognized by another accredited school. All MCS students who graduate from the 8th grade have guaranteed admission to an elite high school in the area. A 3.0 GPA and commendable citizenship is required.
