New Braunfels Christian Academy is dually accredited for Kindergarten through grade 12 by Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and by AdvanceEd, formerly known as Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS/CASI).

NBCA has been an active member of ACSI since 1998, and the secondary athletic programs compete as members of Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) and Independent School Athletic League of San Antonio (ISAL). Our High School and Middle School programs compete in TAPPS and PSIA (Private Schools Interscholastic Association) academic events, respectively. In addition, our elementary program participates in PSIA competitions.

New Braunfels Christian Academy’s accreditation is recognized by the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission (TEPSAC), which helps to ensure quality in private schools by monitoring and approving organizations that accredit the various non-public elementary and secondary educational institutions in the state of Texas. The relationship of TEPSAC with the Texas State Commissioner of Education allows for the following activities related to accredited non-public schools:

  1. Transferability of student credits earned in accredited non-public schools to Texas public schools

  2. Recognition of teacher service in accredited non-public schools for salary increment purposes in Texas public schools
