It's a good thing for a school to be accredited, but what exactly does that mean?

Accreditation is a process of recognizing and assessing educational institutions for their standards, performance, integrity, and quality. Schools that commit to striving for excellence through accreditation are agreeing to a process of ongoing review to strengthen and improve the effectiveness of the organization and quality of instruction for the students it serves.

Accreditation by a well-recognized agency is a seal of quality on an educational organization. Friends Christian School has been accredited since 1994 by two accrediting agencies: the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The process of accreditation by both organizations involves three significant elements:
    • intensive, institution-wide self-appraisal, analysis, and improvement planning;
    • external consultation, review, validation, and insights from a visiting peer group; and
    • ongoing accountability for improvement through annual reporting and renewal.

The process of accreditation is ongoing for Friends Christian School, preschool through eighth grade. Every six years, we engage in a self-study to evaluate every aspect of the school program, produce a continuous school improvement plan to direct the long-range goals of the school, and host a visiting team of educators whose responsibility it is to ensure compliance with the standards and criteria of both accrediting agencies.

Being an accredited school is, after all, a very good thing for the students, parents, and staff of Friends Christian School. We are held to a high standard, confirming to the school stakeholders and the community at large that Friends Christian School is a school of academic and spiritual excellence that partners with parents to develop, nurture, and equip our students to positively impact their world for Jesus Christ.

About Us

Friends Christian School exists to develop, nurture, and equip students to positively impact their world for Jesus Christ.


Friends Christian School is one school with four distinct campuses. Curriculum and experiences are coordinated so that each year builds upon the one before and prepares students for the next level between grades and between campuses.


A nurturing, Christ-centered environment, great teachers, outstanding academics, art, music, technology, physical education and competitive athletics—Friends Christian has it all.

Spiritual Life

Each year, there is a school theme that we focus on and challenge our students and staff to live out. This year the theme is: BE THE CHANGE —“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”
(James 1:22)


Dedicated teachers, proven curriculum, friends who encourage you and challenge you to do your best—Friends Christian School is a place where students love to learn!


Artistic expression allows students to discover things in a different way, opening new avenues for creativity and growth.


Discipline, teamwork, effort, and fun! Since 1985, Friends Christian School has produced champions in athletic competition.
