Accreditation

NFNSSAA is a coalition of state accrediting associations that serve nonpublic schools for more than 25 years. State membership with NFNSSAA include Arkansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin. NFNSSAA serves over 1,000 elementary and secondary schools with an enrollment of over 197,000 students. The schools it serves include faith-based, independent, and specialty schools. Many of these schools have dual accreditation with regional accrediting associations. The purpose of the organization is to ensure that state nonpublic school accrediting associations are focused on enhancing the quality of education within their individual states through assessment, accountability, educational standards, and continuous school improvement.
