ACSI History

In 1978 the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) was founded through a merger of three associations: The National Christian School Education Association, The Ohio Association of Christian Schools, and the Western Association of Christian Schools. Soon after the new association formed, several other Christian school associations joined ACSI.

The first headquarter of ACSI was in La Habra, California. As the organisation grew, larger office and warehouse facilities were needed. Thus, ACSI moved to its new international headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1994. In addition to our headquarter facility, ACSI has regional offices worldwide.

Today, ACSI's programs and services assist Christian schools at every grade level, including early education and higher education. ACSI is a 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization governed by a 36-member Executive Board elected by member schools.
