The CPCA has historical roots in the work done by founder Dr. Earle E. Lee, and others in the early 1980s to present day. The Council of Private Colleges of America is officially incorporated as a Florida non¬profit corporation. The CPCA outreach continues to this day. They were established in response to leaders of degree granting faith-based institutions in the USA seeking an ethical educational association. The CPCA’s purpose was to create a 21st Century CPCA Certification process.
The CPCA currently is the only educational association with a 21st Century CPCA Certification process for Faith Based institutions comparable to USDE CHEA approved Accrediting Agencies’ academic and administrative standards. The CPCA welcomes and invites Faith Based institutions to examine the benefits of joining the CPCA.
The 21st Century CPCA Certification process excludes the massive USDE accreditation extreme financial requirements pertaining to receiving US government grants, loans, and the annual 80 billion dollar (80,000,000,000.00) Title IV funds. Consequently, CPCA institutions can offer totally Bible integrated courses and degrees at an extremely reduced financial cost to the student. The 21st Century CPCA Certification process recognizes Faith Based economic principles of operation.
CPCA members understand that Faith Based institutions receiving Federal or State Government grants, loans, or Title IV Funds in the USA are subject to the demands tied to such funding. Logically, "Whoever pays the piper has a right to call the tune." The CPCA will NEVER require a CPCA member institution to teach contrary to their Biblical doctrinal positions. NEVER means NEVER!
The 21st Century CPCA Certification process provides a standard for academic and administrative excellence that sets apart CPCA members from the plethora of non-recognized by USDE CHEA accreditation mills.
This fact is important for Faith Based institutions that do not take US government grants, loans, and Title IV funds.Faith Based institutions seeking accreditation from the plethora of non-recognized by USDE CHEA accreditation mills believe that it legitimizes them but it misleads the educational consumer. REMEMBER, CPCA Faith Based institutions strive to, “Keep the Lord’s Testimony above Reproach!”
Faith Based CPCA Member institutions should consider the additional benefits of seeking CPCA certification to feature their academic and administrative standards comparable to USDE CHEA approved Accrediting Agencies.
