ACCS Foundation of Classical Christian Excellence (FCCE)
Essential Training for Classical Christian Teachers
Look for this symbol to find Foundation classes in the Conference Schedule (coming soon).
The FCCE Training Series is:
- a foundational training course in classical Christian education
- for grammar and secondary teachers
- held in conjunction with the Repairing the Ruins conference
Do you have new teachers who need a crash-course on practical classical teaching? Or, are you a current teacher who knows the basic principles of “classical,” but aren’t sure how it all comes together in the classroom? This course is designed to provide a foundational practice in classical K-12 education that will change the way you teach.
We have assembled some of our movement’s most experienced educators and asked them to build a curriculum for new teachers. Each course will offer takeaways you can use in your classroom which will help teachers understand how to implement classical pedagogy. The “Foundation of Classical Christian Excellence” series is offered each year with slight variations, but with a common syllabus. Grammar and secondary teachers will be divided at times.
ACCS Professional Certification
Completing this training series is one of the steps required for ACCS Professional Certification. For ACCS Accredited schools, once your teacher has successfully completed the FCCE Training Series, you can go to the Member Resource Center (MRC) to add them to the list of certified teachers.
The ACCS will record this information in our database and mail back a certificate for the administrator to sign and present to the teacher.
How do I become certified as an educator and/or administrator? I will register for the training that is in the summer months but would like to be involved as soon as possible.
Teacher Certification through ACCS is only available for schools that are accredited, or are in the process of becoming accredited. They are required to create teacher certification programs and have them approved. When a teacher from an accredited school completes a level of certification, the school notifies us and we send them a certificate which recognizes their work. With that said, you can still benefit as an educator from our conference and other resources available to our members.
