Accreditation & Affiliation


ACA is accredited with the Association of Christian Schools International. Accreditation with ACSI is an internationally recognized status that ensures the highest standards in our instructional programs, overall commitment to on-going improvement, and provides a context of accountability for our school ministry based upon biblically founded principles of excellence, integrity, and openness.


In conjunction with our ACSI accreditation, we are also accredited with Cognia (formally known as AdvancED), a broader accrediting agency that is nationally and internationally recognized as an authority in education. Cognia conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of K-12 schools and school systems. Our accreditation status lasts for a five-year term with regular monitoring of progress and reporting on the system-wide high quality standards, continuous improvement, and quality assurance mandated by accreditation. After five years, our accreditation undergoes review before renewal.


Arrowhead Christian Academy is a member of the Christian Schools of Arizona (CSA), the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS), and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
