 SBI is an affiliate of Evangelical Bible Seminary.

   We at SBI desire to provide the highest quality of Christian education and training.  Although quality and accreditation are used interchangeably, they donít always go hand in hand.  Accreditation has often been mistaken for quality.  

We do believe accreditation to be important, as it is a third party analysis and review of our facility, programs, staff, administration and curriculum.  There are many accreditation associations and some are better known than others.  A few are accepted by the government, and therefore are approved for government loans, grants, etc.  We have chosen to have our curriculum and school accredited through the National Association of Christian Education because of its Christian stand on education.  Although this organization is widely acceptable by other NACE. schools, as well as many other accredited schools, it may not be recognized by all schools.  Therefore, it is our policy statement that the accepting of credits of SBI is at the receiving institutionís discretion.
