The Florida Catholic Conference Accreditation Program is one of the oldest Catholic accrediting programs in the country. In the 1960’s, the Florida bishops appointed a committee to explore accreditation. After studying various systems, they established a program unique to Catholic schools which would guarantee constant and continued improvement, accrediting the first schools in 1969.
Founded in 1954 FCIS accredits independent schools throughout Florida. As one on the nation’s largest organization of independent schools, it assures that each school maintains high standards and independence of character without political, financial, or bureaucratic pressures.
The Florida Kindergarten Council is a member of the Florida Association of Academic Nonpublic Schools (FAANS) and as such has been recognized as an official evaluating and accrediting organization for the nonpublic early childhood schools in the State of Florida.
