CCS is accredited through ACSI and is a member of ACCS
Citadel Christian School holds accreditation and membership with Association of Christian Schools International and membership with Association of Classical Christian Schools. We have an effective curriculum and a remarkable staff, providing the tools our students need to master their studies and retain knowledge, rather than simply answer questions on a test. In this environment, student achievement soars.
Achieving accreditation is a thorough process by which a private school is audited and must adhere to certain requirements on governance best practices, financial transparency, curriculum quality, student safety, and staffing. Additionally, all accredited schools in Texas must annually administer a national norm-referenced test approved by the school’s accrediting agency.
