Why Christian Schooling?
The choice you make for your children’s education shapes them academically, spiritually, and in their worldview and skills. At Christian schools, the faculty and staff are equipped to address each of these developing areas of a child’s life. These schools take seriously the responsibility to develop children’s minds, but they don’t distance God from academics. They know that developing skills in young people is essential to helping them reach their God-given potential.
Christian educators help cultivate a worldview in which God has His rightful place, and they look to the Bible for guidance in answering life’s big questions. These teachers enhance children’s spiritual development in an intentional, nurturing manner.
A Christian education at an ACSI member school will help your child grow spiritually, academically, and culturally. In fact, the recent Cardus Education Survey and other education studies show that ACSI schools develop the whole child better than any other type of school.
Why ACSI Accreditation and membership
The difference between being not accredited and accredited is the
difference living with someone and then deciding to marry them.One
could be deemed a relationship of convenience while the other actually demonstrates wholehearted commitment.
The process of accreditation has transformed MCC from a ‘good’
school to a ‘great’ school as J. Collins would put it. We have had to
examine, overhaul and refine our systems to levels where clarity and
standards of excellence have been ushered in. The product from our
institution has become clearly defined, as reflected in our College Creed, and the process for producing it systematically constructed through comprehensive manuals. Accreditation has truly been the second best thing that has happened to MCC, other than its establishment 29 years ago. Ebenezar!
“I wish to encourage schools to consider not only becoming ACSI members but to attain accreditation. The accreditation process has brought the school together – our community, our teachers and different departments working together in harmony. Teachers felt they were part of the decision making process and were empowered to contribute, comment and enhance the policies and procedures of the school. Involving all stakeholders has been of great benefit as the community has worked together to enable the school to progress from good to great.Isabel Skinner
