Pillsbury College & Seminary is proud
to be recognized by and/or associated with
the following professional educational organizations.
- As a Christian school, Pillsbury College &
Seminary was granted "exemption" by the Missouri
Coordinating Board for Higher Education on August 19, 1992.
- Granted "Accredited" status in January of 2003 by the
Accrediting Commission International for Schools, Colleges, and Theological
Seminaries. ACI is an independent non-profit association chartered
as an accrediting agency for small Bible colleges and specialized Christian
schools, institutes, and seminaries. The organization has a current membership
of over 300 schools in 39 states and the District of Columbia.
Because of the Board of Director's convictions in support of religious
freedom, Christian liberty, and the separation of church and state, the
Accrediting Commission International has elected not to apply for affiliation
with any regional or federal government agency. ACI, therefore, is not
officially recognized by the United States Department of Education.
