The National Association of Private Schools is a consortium of Christian educators and schools from across the United States.

NAPS is a ministry of helps which when properly instituted will be of great benefit to many school programs.

THE STANDARD OF EDUCATION
The National Association of Private Schools Accreditation requires the high standard of traditional education based on Biblical values. Traditional education has been the foundation for success in the United States of America from the inception of the nation.

The Association’s Accredited status is earned through academic, technical, and overall excellence. Each school is evaluated by an experienced educational peer group; educators who appreciate and understand the uniqueness of each educational program.

Schools earning accreditation through the National Association of Private Schools will appreciate the attainment of status and recognition in the educational community. Accreditation is a tribute to the fact that the staff and faculty of your school are effectively operating a high quality educational program.

STANDARDS FOR MEMBER AND CANDIDATE SCHOOLS
NAPS standards apply to candidate schools seeking accreditation and to member schools wishing re-accreditation. NAPS expects each school to be able to demonstrate exceptional quality in each area of evaluation to secure or retain membership in the National Association of Private schools.

Since the standards reflect quality rather than quantity, excellence rather than equipment, the accreditation council must evaluate each school on the basis of the evidence presented to determine whether or not the institution has achieved the minimum acceptable level of development in each standard to be granted accreditation.

While it will be using the standards primarily for accreditation purposes, the council anticipates that these standards will provide a framework for goals that will encourage each school to improve its educational program.

The accreditation council expects that the candidate school or the accredited member school being considered for accreditation or re-accreditation has made every reasonable effort to comply with and implement applicable standards or goals formally adopted by the National Association of Private Schools and by the institutions own board of control.
