Accreditation & Professional Affiliation
Fourth Baptist Christian School is a member of the following organizations:
• Minnesota Association of Christian Schools (MACS)
• American Association of Christian Schools (AACS)
Fourth Baptist Christian School is accredited by the AACS, which is a nationally recognized accrediting agency, locally recognized by the State of Minnesota. FBCS obtained a full five-year accreditation from AACS, following successful completion of the accreditation process in June of 2013.
In May of 2018, an AACS Accreditation team revisited Fourth Baptist Christian School for their 5-year accreditation renewal. Fourth Baptist Christian School has been recommended for a five-year accreditation with ‘distinction.’ The ‘distinction’ part is the “extra honor part.” The reason for this honor is because our school was given “exemplary” ratings for more than two of the twelve accreditation standards. This is difficult to do and it is a “big honor” when going through this process. Needless to say, we are thrilled and I want to take a moment to thank our students, parents, staff and teachers, school board members, supporters, church family, and administration. This does not happen without a “team effort” and you are all a big part of the success of our school. While the accreditation is not official until approved by the accreditation commission in late June, this is the recommendation of the visiting team to the commission. We are grateful for the team’s help. In the accreditation report that we should receive in the next couple of weeks, there will be suggestions made that we will consider implementing which are designed to help our school continue to improve. I am looking forward to receiving that report and continue working in the improvement process of our school.
The Lord continues to bless our school – let’s be careful to give Him the praise for it. Thank you again for your support and prayers.
