Reid Temple Christian Academy has achieved full accreditation through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) as well as by Middle States Association (MSA). Accreditation through these organizations is a thorough and rigorous process that involves a complete review of our curriculum, staff and procedures, and one that demonstrates out commitment to transparency and continuous improvement in student learning. In order to maintain accreditation, RTCA submits to these organizations for review every two years.
The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) is a Christian educational organization. We advance excellence in Christian schools by enhancing the professional and personal development of Christian educators and providing vital support functions for Christian schools.
Accreditation is sought by ACSI schools in order to validate their quality and verify that they are striving for excellence based on a solid Christian philosophy of education foundation
Among the premier accrediting associations in the world, the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools pioneered the accreditation of colleges and schools in the United States more than a century ago. Accreditation is a valuable and prestigious achievement among traditional and nontraditional schools, colleges and universities throughout the world. The U.S. Department of Education recognizes accrediting or state approval agencies, including Middle States Association, as a "reliable authority as to the quality of education."
