Mount Horeb Christian School is fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Every five years, Mount Horeb Christian School goes through a rigorous re-accreditation process with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Through this process, we are held accountable for fulfilling our mission statement and operation in a manner consistent with our core values, as well as meeting all state and federal regulations. According to ACSI, their "internationally recognized accreditation program is thought provoking in its approach, stimulating in its methods, and efficient in its procedures.
ACSI promotes the value and worthiness of accreditation and encourages each school and early education program to continuously pursue excellence. This pursuit matches the biblical directive of approving “things that are excellent” (Philippians 1:10, KJV). The “accredited” seal denotes a school that has met institutional standards of quality, and verifies a commitment to strategic improvement and ongoing accountability. The process of accreditation involves three significant elements:
- Intensive, institution-wide self-appraisal, analysis, and improvement planning.
- External consultation, review, validation, and insights from a visiting peer group.
- Ongoing accountability for improvement through annual reporting and renewal.
Mount Horeb Christian School has been fully accredited and carried the ACSI accredited seal since 1987. In the State of Wisconsin, we are recognized as an Elementary/Secondary institution and continue to meet or exceed the Wisconsin State Educational Statutes.
