North American Christian School Accrediting Agency > About Us > History


Established in 2003, NACSAA has steadily grown for the past fifteen years.  Having developed a relationship with National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA) from its inception, NACSAA joined NCPSA’s membership in 2003 and gained full recognition as an accrediting member of NCPSA in 2008.  In 2007, Virginia Council for Private School Accreditation (VCPE) granted full recognition to NACSAA as an accrediting agency; NACSAA and VCPE continue a healthy relationship to the present.
NACSAA has established co-accreditation agreements with American Association of Christian Schools (AACS), North Carolina Christian School Assocation (NCCSA), and South Carolina Association of Christian Schools (SCACS), Georgia Association of Christian Schools (GACS).  From its early years with only a handful of accredited institutions, NACSAA has steadily grown to its present membership.  With the schools presently seeking membership or in the accreditation pipeline of the agency, NACSAA anticipates continued growth and a bright future.
In the past five years, NACSAA has added partnerships with Middle States Association Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) as well as AdvancED.
