The National Commission for Accreditation met on Monday, July 21st and affirmed the unanimous recommendation of the site visit team to accredit Parkview Christian Academy! Parkview is officially accredited by Christian Schools International (CSI) until the 2018 / 2019 school year at which time we’ll host another site visit. In addition, we’ll submit a School Improvement Plan and provide documentation demonstrating growth toward the associated goals every year. The leadership of Parkview is beyond excited about this news and what it means for our future. It’s a HUGE step forward in our continued development as a school. Perhaps you’re wondering why we pursued this accreditation. Well, here are the highlights straight from CSI’s website. Christian Schools International accreditation verifies that your Christian school is true to its mission and vision of nurturing God’s children and young people. Christian Schools International accreditation has imbedded within it the transformational Christian worldview that is the signature of Christian Schools International and its member schools. Christian Schools International’s accreditation programs enable your school community to conduct a thorough self assessment of your Christian school and develop a school improvement plan, guiding your school on the path of doing even better for God’s children and young people. Christian Schools International accreditation provides your parents, students, staff, and governing body with an assurance that your school holds itself to high academic standards integrated with excellence and centered in Christ. Christian Schools International accreditation provides colleges, universities, many states, and donors with credible verification that your school has established and maintained high standards based upon the best educational research.

Meet the Reillys

Say hi to Aaron and Sue Reilly. They have a son in preschool and a daughter in 3rd grade at Parkview Christian Academy. We recently sat down with them and asked about their experiences at Parkview. The resulting dialogue is below. Thanks Aaron and Sue, we greatly appreciate your family and all you do for Parkview. How long have you lived in the area? We both grew up in the country in central Illinois and met at the University of Illinois. We first lived in Aurora for 6 years when we got married and moved to Bristol in 2007. What drew your family to Parkview? Full day kindergarten was the reason we started at Parkview 4 years ago. Since I’m a working mom, I was researching daycare options to compliment half day kindergarten in the Yorkville school system. I wasn’t finding anything where I felt 100% confident in sending my daughter and a friend told me about Parkview. So, we enrolled our daughter and that’s when I say ‘we fell in love with the school’. What keeps your family at Parkview? Our intention was to send our daughter to full day kindergarten and then transition to the public school system. About 2 weeks into kindergarten at Parkview, we fell in love with the character of the school, the history of the building, the loving / caring nature of each teacher, the amazing atmosphere nurtured at Parkview — that a 5th grader interacts / encourages and cares about a kindergartner and vice versa. From the janitor, secretaries, and teachers to Ms. Benson, you can feel the love, respect, and caring attitude from each individual. What’s a memorable moment for your family tied to Parkview? We love all the special activities: History Fair, Science Fair — those were always our favorites — to see all the students from various classes interact with the younger children and seeing our younger child being able to participate in a school event that included all the grade levels. If you could summarize Parkview in three words, what would they be? God-honoring, encouraging, and sound-education. What would you say to someone on the fence about Christian education? You must first decide as a family what is...
