The Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS) mobile app informs members and convention attendees with up-to-the-minute association and convention details. The Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS) is a professional education association founded in 1954 by a small group of independent private school leaders. Their purpose was to establish high standards for nonpublic schools.
Today, FCIS evaluates and accredits independent schools throughout Florida. As one of the nation’s largest organizations of independent schools, it represents over 72,000 students in 157 member schools. The Council assures that each school maintains high standards and independence of character without political, financial, or bureaucratic pressures.
FCIS accredits coed, day, boarding and single sex schools in grades pre-kindergarten through twelve. All FCIS schools have racially nondiscriminatory admissions policies.
Traditionally, independent schools establish their own philosophies, standards, and programs, developing their own guidelines for academic achievement, discipline, and, in some cases, religious commitment.
The Council is an association member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), an affiliate of the Council of American Private Education (CAPE), and a founding member of the Florida Association of Academic Nonpublic Schools (FAANS).
