First Coast Christian School is accredited by the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS), a voluntary, service providing association of Christian schools, Christian colleges and universities, homeschool groups, and homeschool families. Started in 1968, FACCS is the oldest, state-level association of Christian schools in the nation.
Having met or exceeded nationally recognized standards through FACCS accreditation, First Coast Christian School has also achieved dual accreditation by Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS). MSA-CESS accredits early-childhood through post-secondary, non-degree granting public, private, faith-based educational institutions. MSA-CESS is one of the regional accrediting organizations recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a gatekeeper for eligibility for Title IV funding for post-secondary institutions.
