Joint Accreditation

FCIS offers a joint accreditation process with four partners: the Florida Kindergarten Council (FKC), AdvancED-SACS, the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS). The joint accreditation process allows schools to pursue up to five accreditations (FCIS, FKC, AdvancED-SACS, ACSI and SAIS) with only

  • one self-study
  • one team
  • one evaluation

In all agreements, FCIS is the lead association, and schools must complete an FCIS Self-Study and be evaluated by an FCIS-led team. More details may be found in the FCIS Accreditation Manual.
