CPCA Has A Tradition of Honoring the Scriptures

& Promoting Scholarship

WELCOME TO THE Council of Private Colleges of America (CPCA) where we honor the Scriptures. The mottos of the CPCA are “Preventive and Proactive Protection of Today’s Private Faith Based Institutions for Tomorrow’s Students”, and “Keeping the Lord’s Testimony above Reproach!”

  • The CPCA is a Faith Based educational membership association for Faith Based institutions that operate in US states excluding Florida, and other countries. CPCA Members join as Sustaining Members with membership approval being determined by the CPCA.
  • The Council of Private Colleges of America (CPCA) was established in response to leaders of degree granting Faith Based institutions in the USA seeking an ethical educational association.
  • The intended purpose was to create a CPCA Certification agency process that provides academic and administrative comparability to United States Department of Education (USDE) recognized Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) accrediting agencies’ for Faith Based institutions.
