FCIS Accreditation — because you want the best for your child.

FCIS accreditation signifies that the school you have chosen for your child’s education is among the best independent private schools in the nation and the world.

All parents wish the best for their child. You want them to feel safe and secure, to be nurtured in an environment that fosters strength of character, accountability and independent thinking — an education that produces global citizens with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to lead productive, fulfilling lives.

You want to provide an educational experience that offers the richest array of opportunities - one that allows students to discover their passions, develop their talents, and unlock a future of unlimited possibilities. That’s why you have chosen an independent school education for your child.

What is an independent school?

An independent school is a mission-based educational institution substantially free from political or financial administration by government, with consequent liberty of purpose and practice. This independence implies freedom to set academic standards and curricula, to embark upon mission-based educational programs, and the choice to give religious training and faith a central place in the educational process, if desired.

How do you know which of the many independent schools in your community is really the best?

When only the best will do, FCIS accreditation is the gold standard of educational excellence, with its schools recognized among the top independent schools in the nation and the world.
