Accreditation

Pacific Baptist School is not regionally accredited. Pacific Baptist School is a ministry with sincerely held religious convictions against government control and oversight over the academic aspects of our institution. While the State of California does not require Pacific Baptist School to obtain any state or regional accreditation in order to operate or grant diplomas, individual public school districts, colleges, and universities establish their own admissions policies. What this means is that, although state law does not require that a private Christian School student or graduate come from an accredited Christian school in order to be eligible for admission into a public school, college, or university, those individual schools do have the authority to impose such a requirement. While our experience has been that most of the schools gladly accept students from unaccredited Christian schools, some do not, requiring the student to undergo additional testing or retake core subject courses, or even acquire a GED. Because we have no control over the policies adopted by public high schools, colleges and universities, we cannot make any guarantee for graduates of Pacific Baptist School with regard to admission into the public school system should you choose to withdraw. Parents are encouraged to personally check with their local school districts or colleges in which their children are interested to find out what their particular policies are regarding admissions and transferring credits.
