HB 1 eliminates financial eligibility restrictions and the current enrollment caps for the state scholarship programs. The bill enables school choice for every child in the state.

Republican lawmakers support a transformational expansion of Florida’s “voucher” programs. Arizona, Iowa and Utah have already done so.

For the fourth year in a row, has ranked Westminster Academy as the best Christian high school in Broward County, bestowing the school an A+ overall rating.

On his first day in office, Manny Diaz, Jr., Florida’s new Education Commissioner, convened a video meeting with school choice advocates.

The $19m Pentecost Athletic Center — named after the project’s largest benefactor — includes several courts for basketball, volleyball and wrestling, along with a multi-purpose field for soccer and football.

Senate Bill 52 and House Bill 1159 especially benefit economically disadvantaged students, who rely on state school choice scholarship programs to attend private schools.

House Bill 7045 widens eligibility and maximizes parental choice in K-12 scholarship programs, separately targeting both both low-income and uniquely-abled students and increasing scholarship awards from 95% to 100%.

The $28.5m state scholarship program would serve as a “gateway to college for so many students,” said Dr. Adam Gaffey of Robert F. Monroe Day School in Quincy.

The Federal Government has allocated $213m in emergency services / relief funds for Florida’s non-public schools, to be released under an expedited timeline.

The proposed bill would streamline Florida’s scholarship programs and allow flexible spending options.

Florida policy continues to trend towards school choice as a way of leveling persistent gaps in resources.

For their first High School Choir remote assignment, Orangewood Christian School students recorded Elton John & Bernie Taupin’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”. And it’s awesome!

The maximum enrollment growth for Family Empowerment Scholarships will jump from 7,000 to 28,000 students.

The Florida House has increased teacher salaries by $150 million more than what the Senate proposed — and almost $50m more than Governor Ron DeSantis requested.

One bill raises teachers’ salaries over three years; another wraps early learning programs within the DoE.

The salary increase proposed by Governor Ron DeSantis applies only to public school teachers, but may have a ripple effect on private school salaries.

Private school enrollment has been rising in Florida for a whole decade, with the most dramatic increase — 22,525 students — occurring between 2015/16 and 2016/17.

For Hurricane Irma in 2017, Orange County distributed no fewer than 123,000 sandbags. This team of 9th-graders tested various bags for cost-efficiency, biodegradability, durability and practicality.

The Governor signed the bill in Jerusalem whilst leading a visit to Israel with other officials. It marks the first time in Florida’s history that a law has been enacted on foreign soil.

Action is needed today to restore dual-enrollment access to non-public-school students.

The Family Empowerment Scholarship would be available for about 28,000 students in the next school year.

Senate Democrats attempted unsuccessfully to remove the section in a school safety bill that would potentially arm teachers; the vote went along party lines.

Defeating Seffner Christian, WA’s Men’s Varsity Basketball Team won an historic third consecutive FHSAA Class 4A Basketball State Championship.

High school students can deepen their interest in mathematics and enter the Society’s national contests.

Students will take the NWEA MAP Growth test, which is gaining popularity among private, Christian, and charter schools across Florida.

Christian Schools of Florida supports, encourages and accredits Christian early childhood, elementary, and secondary schools in the State of Florida that endorse Transformational Education.

CSF staff and Executive Committee members are credentialed and professional educators experienced in school leadership and accreditation protocols.

We co-accredit with other agencies and have agreements with organizations whose standards we respect and trust.

CSF for School Accreditation

Accreditation instills new life in a school, fostering a greater awareness among faculty, staff and board members.

“If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.”
—John 5:31

CSF accreditation is an ongoing five-year process for school effectiveness and improvement.

Schools accredited elsewhere can also be accredited by CSF, but must be in compliance with the standards of both agencies.

Accreditation by CSF exempts early childhood programs from state licensing.
