Tipton Christian Academy is in the final stages of our dual accreditation process with Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and AdvancedEd.  

Accreditation with ACSI accomplishes the following objectives:

  • documents that Tipton Christian Academy is true to its own foundational statements (mission, vision, core values, goals)
  • affirms that Tipton Christian Academy meets standards of quality established by the international school community
  • provides validation of the credibility of Tipton Christian Academy through a peer review process
  • promotes accountability to our community
  • improves instruction targeting increased student achievement
  • promotes ongoing instructional improvement through a continuous process of self-assessment and systematic school development 
  • encourages the evaluation of biblical and spiritual integration at Tipton Christian Academy
  • transfers credits between schools and between nation's school systems

A group of 63 administrators, faculty, parents and community stakeholders have worked over the past 18 months to finalize our self-study report.
