Clarksville Christian School is a dually accredited institution, having been granted full accreditation status from both AdvancED (formerly SACS–Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
From the inception of Clarksville Christian School in 2007, the desire has been to strive for excellence. CCS has undergone an intensive and rigorous five-year process to earn this distinction. The benefits of affiliation with organizations such as AdvancED and ACSI hold CCS to a higher standard and degree of accountability. Benefits that are appreciated by students and their parents include greater access to federal loans, scholarships, and post-secondary education and military programs that require students to attend an accredited institution, as well as ease in transferring of credits.
Principal Amanda Binkley states, “The accreditation status given to CCS by both ACSI and AdvancED will give the students who graduate from CCS all the same rights and privileges as students who graduate from any school in Tennessee, public or private. Dual accreditation ensures that students will have access to college preparation (ACT, SAT, Dual Enrollment, etc.) and full recognition of their diplomas by colleges and universities. Accreditation allows us to compete academically with any school, large or small, in the quality education that we can provide to our students.”
