CSF for Transformational Education

Transformational Education embraces the Gospel as a way of life—a way of thinking, a way of doing ethics, a way of making choices—so that it cannot be segregated out from any other part of life and/or be compartmentalized.

Christian Schools of Florida supports, encourages and accredits Christian early childhood, elementary, and secondary schools in the State of Florida that endorse Transformational Education.

CSF staff and Executive Committee members are credentialed and professional educators experienced in school leadership and accreditation protocols.

We co-accredit with other agencies and have agreements with organizations whose standards we respect and trust.

Member schools enjoy associate, accredited or collaborative status.

CSF for School Accreditation

Accreditation instills new life in a school, fostering a greater awareness among faculty, staff and board members.

“If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.”
—John 5:31

CSF accreditation is an ongoing five-year process for school effectiveness and improvement.

Schools accredited elsewhere can also be accredited by CSF, but must be in compliance with the standards of both agencies.

Accreditation by CSF exempts early childhood programs from state licensing.
