Founded in 1977, the Garden State Association of Christian Schools (GSACS) is an educational association established to aid in promoting, maintaining, and improving the moral, spiritual, and academic standards of Christian schools in New Jersey.
GSACS members have access to quality programs for teacher certification and school accreditation. Members may take advantage of health and life insurance, student accident, dental, and liability insurance, 403(b)-retirement plans, and other excellent benefits. Students participate in the numerous competition opportunities the association provides in athletics and fine arts on the state and national level. The association provides outstanding opportunities for its constituents at the annual Education Conference, Teacher Orientations, Consulation Services, and various other staff-enhancing events.
The Garden State Association of Christian Schools is a direct affiliate of the American Association of Christian Schools – which is the federation of state associations who work in harmony with the national association in providing member services. AACS consists of forty state, regional, and international associations working together to provide legislative oversight, to promote high quality Christian education programs, to encourage the goal of producing Christlike young people, and to provide related institutional and personnel services to our constituents. AACS is unique in that it has the strength of a national coalition of Bible-believing Christian schools with the practicality of locally-controlled state associations.
Member schools are provided with the opportunity to participate in Academic Competition, Athletic Competition, Annual Education Conference, Assistance in Starting Schools, Consultant Services, Legal Assistance, Spelling Bee, Student Leadership Conference, Teacher Orientation, and much more.
