We have been granted full accreditation with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) as of February 2010. ACSI is recognized worldwide as an accrediting agency for Christian schools and often works in cooperation with Mid-States Accrediting Association, having similar academic requirements with additional requirements pertaining to a biblical perspective. While ECA is registered as an “Academy” in Spain, we are not recognized by the Spanish Department of Education as a “Colegio”.

In our more than 40 years of existence, we have never had a graduate whose diploma was rejected by a college or university in the United States. On the contrary, our graduates have gone on to schools of their choice, such as Oxford, Wheaton, Annapolis, Asbury, Moody, Purdue, Georgia Tech, Bob Jones, Cedarville, Liberty, Carson Newman, Covenant, etc.

We do not guarantee, however, that our diplomas will be recognized by countries other than the United States. Each country is unique in its high school level requirements, and we suggest that parents research these requirements before inadvertently limiting their children's options for higher education.
