Accreditation Renewed for Nyack by the Association of Christian Schools International

Dr. JoAnn Looney, dean of the Nyack College School of Education, is pleased to announce that after a team visit to Nyack’s Manhattan and Rockland County campuses, the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) Commission on Accreditation has approved the School of Education for another ten-year term in the Higher Education Approval Program.

*The Higher Education Approval Program (HEAP) is offered to accredited Christian liberal arts colleges, universities, and Bible colleges that are ACSI members. Colleges and universities are qualified to participate in the program if they give evidence of a commitment to preparing teachers and administrators to serve in Christian schools. They must also show they are encouraging their graduates to prayerfully consider serving in Christian schools. Graduates of approved programs will reflect a pervasive Christian testimony and will have an understanding of the following:

•             A Christian worldview

•             The philosophy of Christian school education

•             The distinctive of Christian schooling

•             The process of biblically integrating instruction

Congratulations to Dean Looney and members of the School of Education faculty and staff on this recognition!
