KDI was originally accredited through the ACCREDITNG COMMISSION INTERNATIONAL (ACI), the world’s largest non-governmental school accrediting association. ACI is the accrediting authority for thousands of students in hundreds of schools in 9 countries on 5 continents, and operates in 35 states within the USA (including Washington, DC).

KDI is currently accredited through Transworld Accrediting Commission International (TACI) and they exist to assure the quality and assist in the improvement of the institution or program we accredit, preschool through postsecondary–within our shared Biblical distinctives by establishing an organizational witness to their credibility of performance and integrity.

The Transworld Accrediting Commission International (TACI) is a professional, federally recognized, non-profit church educational organization whose philosophy is to demonstrate accountability to the consuming public for education obtained in non-traditional evangelical educational institutions. This accountability is demonstrated by institutions that are accredited by TAC, having documented evidence of compliance with TACI standards of structure and governance, material resources, policies, faculty and curriculum.


DISCLAIMER...KDI is NOT a secular or government accredited University because we can always say and do what God has put us on the earth to do both today and in the generations to come without governmental rules or restrictions. Nor do we have to compromise on or accept or be silent on same sex or transgender issues, because we have accepted state or government financial assistance or support.

A bible college or religious organization does not need to be accredited, but we sought out an independent accrediting organization that reviewed all of our curriculum, biblical beliefs and did a complete onsite visit of our facility. At some point in the near future we will also seek after a business or corporate accreditation as well.
