The ACSI Europe Christian School Improvement Platform (CSIP)

ACSI is committed to supporting excellence in both academics and spirituality for Christian schools. All schools in Europe are accredited by their country's educational agencies to secure physical and academic standards, however, there has been no way to assess and strengthen their Christian distinctives across our diverse language, educational and cultural settings.

As a response to this need, ACSI Europe has developed a multi-lingual tool to build school communities through identifying strengths and weaknesses in a setting of strategic professional support between member schools and partner organizations. Our goal is to increase the effectiveness of Christian schools as each one shares and  implements their vision throughout their teaching and learning communities. You can read more about CSIP here.

School Partnership Development:

  • Schools will be assigned a time to host conversations with other participants during the conference.
  • We encourage you to think about ways that you want to collaborate with schools from other countries for the mutual benefit of your students and teachers. The best encouragement for partnership is highlighting what you can offer to others in these partnership opportunities.
