Accreditation with the International Christian Accrediting Association (ICAA) is a process that is designed to improve a school through a peer-based review process. It takes commitment and effort from all school stakeholders. Advancement through the established procedures and standards of institutional performance is determined by review of ICAA representatives and the vote of the ICAA Commission for Accreditation. 

Acceptance of a school as an applicant is not automatic, but is the result of successful completion of the applicant review process conducted by qualified ICAA representatives. The timely submission of materials and fees is essential to initiate the applicant review.
