Identifying, empowering and equipping national leaders for effective national associations of Christian schools.

Africa Roundtable 2018 Feedback

What partnership practices facilitate sustained development of African national associations of Christian schools?

Welcome to ACSI Africa

We identify, empower and equip national leaders for effective national associations of Christian schools.

National Association Offices

ACSI supports the development of national associations that are led and staffed by nationals, culturally relevant and self-sustainable.

An ACSI national association office (AKA country office) advances Christian education generally and Christian schooling in particular within a specific country.  Its roles include provision of services to member schools and others either directly or through service providers, the promotion and development of Christian schooling, government advocacy and liaison, professional development of Christian school staff and promoting ACSI membership.

A national association provides leadership for the Christian school sector in a particular country.

Some of the services a national association of Christian schools provides:






Teacher recruitment


Professional development workshops


Advocacy (school registration with the state, etc.)


Student activities (academic, art, music, camps, sport, etc.)


Book sales for school leaders, teachers and students


Strategic connections with higher education teacher training faculties


Paths to School Improvement (PSI) linked to a specialized Professional Development Program (PDP)


Professional communications such as newsletters and networking (churches, other national ACSI offices, etc.)


School visits where association leaders listen/support, identify needs, connect school needs to association services


ACSI's Vision

to become a leading international organization that promotes Christian education and provides training and resources to Christian schools and Christian educators.

The result in schools

Biblically sound, academically rigorous, socially engaged, and culturally relevant schools that contribute to the public through effective teaching and learning.

The result in educators

Educators will embody a biblical worldview, engage in transformational teaching, discipling and embrace personal and professional growth.


ACSI Africa's purpose is to identify, empower and equip national leaders for effective national associations of Christian schools. Existing and new schools benefit through professional associations for the development and delivery of quality Christian education. ACSI, the world’s largest Protestant association of Christian schools, is a global leader in the development and work of national associations of Christian schools.
