After only its second year of operation, Southside Academy has been awarded Foundational Accreditation by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). This prestigious accreditation is a significant achievement for Southside Academy and the community the school serves.

Southside Academy, a private Christian school located in South Rocky Mount, serves children from under-resourced households in the area.

Breona Walker, the Head of School at Southside Academy, spearheaded the accreditation efforts. "This accreditation is a major milestone for our school," said Walker. "It reflects the dedication to excellence that defines Southside Academy. Our board, staff, students, and parents are all deeply committed to creating an environment where students can thrive academically, spiritually, physically, and emotionally. It's a great time to be a Titan – today and every day!"

Rev. Justin Nale, Board Chair of Southside Academy, shared Walker's enthusiasm for the accreditation. "We are delighted to see the hard work of our faculty and staff recognized through this accreditation," said Nale. "It inspires us to continue providing high-quality, classical Christian education to the students of South Rocky Mount."

Walker emphasized that the accreditation process has not only strengthened Southside Academy as a school but has also instilled greater confidence in potential financial partners.
