Accreditation

Foundation Christian Academy is accredited by Cognia (formerly AdvancED), the National Christian School Association (NCSA) and the Kentucky Department of Education.

AdvancED: An AdvancED accredited school is one that has demonstrated its commitment to meeting a set of research-based standards, to engaging in a program of continuous school improvement, and to providing for quality assurance through self- evaluation and peer review. Accreditation assures parents, the business community, and the public that the school is committed to raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation.

NCSA accreditation logo-02   National Christian School Association (NCSA): National Christian School Association member schools stress academic excellence in a Christian environment. Most member schools are accredited by one or more state, regional or private accrediting agencies. As a group, NCSA schools average between the 70th and 95th percentiles in standardized test scores. Graduates of NCSA schools typically score higher than their state averages on ACT and SAT scores. Two member schools have earned the "Blue Ribbon School" designation from the U.S. Department of Education, the nation's highest secondary school award. Each year, NCSA member schools in several states win athletic, music and forensics titles competing with both public and private schools.

 

    Non-Public schools must adhere to Kentucky laws regarding school attendance, minimum instructional hours, subjects taught and records kept. These details are explained in the Kentucky Non-Public Schools Information Packet.  In order for a non-public school to obtain a KDE issued school number the school must complete the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) Certification process.
