Private schools.

Public schools and their grades, based on Florida Comprehensive Achievement (FCAT) scores, can be found in the Community Listings section, pages 32-43. Most colleges require that an applicant's diploma come from an accredited high school, public or private. And if regional accreditation is specified, then the school must be approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), which is the accrediting body for all public schools and universities in 11 southeastern states. Note: Accreditation abbreviations are as follows: American Montessori Society (AMS); Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI); Christian Schools of Florida (CSF); Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS); Florida Catholic Conference (FCC); Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS); Florida Independent School Association (FISA); Florida Kindergarten Council (FKC); Florida League of Christian Schools (FLCS); Florida National School Accreditation Alliance (FNSAA); International Christian Accrediting Association (ICAA); National Lutheran Schools Association (NLSA); Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
