An 18-month process culminated June 26 when the Accreditation Commission for the American Association of Christian Schools voted to grant full accreditation to Victory Baptist Academy.
“Becoming fully accredited is an important milestone in our school’s young history,” said Matt Ticzkus, administrator at VBA. “Accreditation demonstrates to our parents and to our community that Victory Baptist Academy is absolutely committed to providing an excellent, biblically-based education that is affordable and accessible for families.”
The school chose to be accredited by the American Association of Christian Schools, which is an organization serving 40 state and international associations and approximately 800 schools. The rigorous accreditation process is recognized in multiple states, and the organization has co-accreditation with other national and regional accreditors.
“We congratulate the leadership and the teachers at Victory Baptist Academy for a job well done,” said Jeff Walton, executive director of AACS. “We are happy to count Victory Baptist Academy as a fully-accredited member school in the AACS. When parents place their children in an AACS-accredited school, they can be confident that they are sending their children into a safe and secure environment at a school that is focused on academic quality and fidelity to biblical truth.”
AACS has two primary office locations: the national office, which is located in East Ridge, TN, and the Legislative Office, which is located in Washington, D.C.
“We are thrilled to partner with the American Association of Christian Schools,” Ticzkus said. “Not only does AACS provide our school with accountability and numerous professional resources, but also, they are committed to supporting the mission of our school.”
