SBACS exists to advance church related Christian school ministries by fortifying school leaders with information, training, professional networks and an influence artery. SBACS is a nonprofit organization of Christian schools whose member schools are sponsored by Southern Baptist churches, state conventions or share a common vision and mission. Today approximately 600 Christian schools are supported and operated by Southern Baptist churches and state conventions.
We are committed to programs that encourage and support excellence in Christian education, a biblical worldview in curriculum and admissions policies that make Christian education available to all students regardless of race, national or ethnic origin.
Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools is "...uniting home, church and school in Jesus Christ."
