Accreditation and Authorization

The General Council of Ministers, USA has all the privilege of Holy Spirit University as a subsidiary of it. Here is the statement of:

Accreditation and Authorization
Accreditation is the act of certifying that an educational institution maintains suitable standards; the granting of approval to an institution of learning by an official review board after the school has met certain requirements. Specifically, accreditation is the review of a school’s course offerings and procedures by a group of its peers to certify that that school is meeting its own stated objectives and offering its students the education it promises them.Authorization for ecclesiastical educational entities not issuing secular degrees is not acquired through the same state and federal agencies through which secular educational institutions acquire authorization. The primary reason for this is the U.S. Constitutional matter of the separation of Church and State. The secular authorization system essentially grants regulatory oversight of the curriculum offered by educational institutions authorized by it.The consensus of the vast majority of Christian parochial educational institutions offering Biblically based education and theological training is that curricular authorization for such Christian vocational educational institutions cannot be properly assessed by secular agencies, and that Christian vocational educational institutions have a U.S. Constitutional right to establish their curriculum according to their own particular doctrinal convictions.

Many Christian vocational educational institutions, including HSU, are of the firm conviction that authorization through recognized Christian vocational educational agencies is vitally important and that Christian vocational authorization should be established in order to insure proper standards of academic excellence.
