Who is ACSI?
The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) exists to strengthen Christian schools and equip Christian educators worldwide as they prepare students academically and inspire them to become devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
ACSI Australia is the global expression of Christian Schools Australia as we connect with schools across Asia-Pacific and the world for mutual benefit and transformative change. We are seeking genuine partnerships with Christian schools and organisations in order to unify the body of believers and see people transformed by the love of Christ.
We envision Christian schools that are ‘lighthouses’, not ‘clubhouses’, working to bless others out of the abundant blessing we have received, and working together as one global body of Christ.
Why join ACSI?

- Opportunities for your staff and students to serve internationally, through student and teacher exchange, mission trips, and meaningful overseas partnerships.

We want to see students empowered to become global citizens and 21st century learners through engaging in genuine and mutually beneficial partnerships with people and communities around the world. However, this isn’t always an easy task. To make this process as simple for your school as possible, your ACSI membership will grant you access to a network of Christian educators in over 100 countries, who can provide governance and oversight to your partnerships and service learning projects, so that students around the world can flourish and reach their full potential in Christ.
Our members say…
Andy Callow, Belgrave Heights Christian School
The one thing that’s better than being a Child of God is … to be one of His many, many children.
Similarly, I love the way that being a member school of ACSI connects us dynamically with similar communities of God’s people around the world.
