American Christian Tours is a company that desires to honor God and proclaim Christ.
We believe that we were placed here for "such a time as this" to educate people of all ages to become world changers by teaching historical truths and imparting personal responsibility to contribute to the success of their communities, our nation, and the world.
In doing so, we will strive for:
excellence in the service we provide
expansion of those services

We will maintain these goals through:
a commitment of trust and loyalty among ourselves and to those we represent and serve
In 1984 two people had a dream that they could do something big. They envisioned an education-centered tour company founded on godly principles that would teach biblical principles to faith-based schools and organizations during their travel programs. They believed that integrating history and faith on a tour would be life-changing. God blessed their dream – in incredible ways.
Today, literally thousands of people have been impacted for eternity by experiencing one of our tour programs.
We are humbled and honored that God has blessed our company with the privilege of sharing HIStory through travel programs for over thirty years. Our team has combined experience of over 250 years! (That just means that we have a GREAT team that has stayed around because they are passionate about why we do what we do!)
Our goal is to continue to grow and expand on all levels. Though the truth never changes, the methods of delivery do. As we embrace change, we collaborate in finding innovative ways to connect the why and the what in engaging ways for all learning styles and ages.

American Christian Tours® is accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI). NCA CASI is an accreditation division of Cognia. Cognia has access to over 100 years of expertise in accreditation and school improvement.
What is Cognia?
Cognia is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of PreK-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential.
With expertise grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, Cognia combines the knowledge and expertise of a research institute, the skills of a management consulting firm and the passion of a grassroots movement for educational change. Their goal isn’t to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, their commitment is to help schools improve.
They serve as a trusted partner to 32,000 schools and school systems-employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students-across the United States and 70 other nations.
Why is American Christian Tours accreditated by Cognia?
Accreditation lays the groundwork for success for schools and students. Parents have long held education as a key to their child’s preparation and success in life. Equally, educators have known that a quality education is of the utmost importance for a child’s future. Quality and success are not mutually exclusive in the education process. Quality and student success go hand-in-hand and are why American Christian Tours (ACTS) sought accreditation as a travel school.
ACTS has met a set of standards developed by Cognia that offer education providers a framework for continuous improvement. We have agreed to regular self and outside reviews to ensure ongoing progress. We take pride in knowing our Education Programs and institutional integrity meet and exceed the standards, and are committed to ensuring that expectation into the future.
