Sunrise is accredited through ACSI, and our teachers are required to hold an active ACSI certification. 

Initial Certification:  

  New Teachers are given a one year grace period to become ACSI Certified.  For example, if you started teaching in August 2022, you are expected to hold an active ACSI certification by August 2023.  If you apply within the first year, SCA will cover the $75 application fee (contact Mindee Henry for credit card info for application).  If a teacher does not apply for certification within their first year, the teacher is required to cover the $75 application fee.  


  • Where can I send my transcripts?  Official Transcripts can be sent electronically to:

Renewal Certification: 

  Once you are issued an ACSI certificate, the certificate will tell you the "Expiration Date" and the "Requirements for Renewal".   It is each teacher's responsibility to maintain an active certificate and to not let it lapse.  As long as you renew before the expired date, Sunrise will pay the $75 renewal fee.  If outside of the expired date, thteacher is required to cover the renewal fee.  If you have questions or need to verify your renewal requirements you can contact

RightNow Media: 

  RightNow Media is a great resource for teachers to watch and earn the Continuing Education Units (CEU's) needed for ACSI Certification.  RightNow Media and ACSI have partnered together to create a "Teacher Professional Development" section where you can watch ACSI approved Bible and Educational videos .
