The Council on Educational Standards and Accountability is an organization committed to providing events designed to bring school leaders together for the purpose of strengthening Christian schools.  CESA is a council, as each member school is a part of the collective leadership of the greater whole of CESA. Through the relationships we build, the collaboration, interpersonal dialogue, and commitment to our own personal growth and that of our peers, we are different. By leveraging this capital, the Council on Educational Standards and Accountability will continue to seek new ways and use time-tested strategies to help improve how Christian schools impact the world.
