The National Association of Private Schools
The National Association of Private Schools is an independent educational agency founded for the purpose of recognizing educational excellence in the private, non-traditional educational environment. Schools that maintain traditional educational values and high educational standards will find a home here. Private schools due to size, philosophical commitment or educational methodology are often unwilling or unable to apply for secular accreditation.
Accreditation should reflect a school’s trustworthiness in the process of providing a quality educational program. In most cases, state accreditation measures a school based on the size of the facility, state-certified teachers, on-site schools, number of books in the library, and a certain number of students in the school. Because of this, private schools concerned about mastery of basic academic skills and character development especially, if based on Biblical principles, must seek accreditation from agencies not associated with the regional or state accreditation programs such as the National Association of Private Schools.
Schools accredited by the National Association of Private Schools have demonstrated a history of providing their students with a quality educational program. Schools accredited by NAPS seek to meet or exceed state and national traditional educational guidelines in their pre-school through high school educational programs.
