Bethel Christian Academy Accreditation
BETHEL CHRISTIAN ACADEMY ACCREDITATION
Goldsboro, NC, May 8, 2019 — Bethel Christian Academy (BCA) has been fully accredited by the North Carolina Christian School Association (NCCSA) effective May 1, 2019, for a term of five years. NCCSA accreditation provides a benchmark for Christian schools which measures standards, performance, integrity, and quality. Schools engage in a voluntary process of self-evaluation against accepted best practices and educational standards. This evaluative process involves the visit of an accreditation team of Christian education professionals who scrutinize the following standards for accreditation: philosophy and administration, governance, school improvement plan, finances, facilities, school climate and organization, health and safety, educational program, assessment, student services, student life and activities, and information resources and technology. The accreditation process is designed to assist schools in achieving a standard of excellence and provide the framework for the ongoing School Improvement Program (SIP) of the school.
The NCCSA accreditation protocol has been formally recognized by the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education and is approved by the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA) through a co-accreditation agreement with the North American Christian School Accrediting Agency (NACSAA). As part of the onsite team visit, a representative of NACSAA participated in the peer review and report writing process. NACSAA partners with AdvanceED/SACS and the Middle States Association Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) to provide co-accreditation to NCCSA member schools.
Bethel Christian Academy is located at 1936 Banks School Road, Kinston, NC 28504. BCA currently educates students from preschool through grade-12. BCA is committed to Christ-centered education with academic excellence in a nurturing environment.
