Their purpose is stated below. Does anyone know the extent to which they did actually parallel those standards? The list of colleges on the site isn't impressive but was this a legitimate effort? The only non US DoE/CHEA entity I am aware of that had a pretty good reputation (but probably no utility) was the Reformed entity that Michael Burgos mentioned. If I recall correctly, that one is seeking recognition. "The CPCA Certification Commission (CPCA CC) was established in response to leaders of degree granting Faith Based institutions in the USA seeking an ethical educational association. The intended purpose was to create a CPCA Certification agency process that provides academic and administrative comparability to United States Department of Education (USDE) recognized Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) accrediting agencies for Faith Based institutions. UNDERSTANDING COMPARABILITY: The CPCA Certification Commission Certification process standards are created comparable to USDE CHEA approved accrediting agencies’ academic and administrative standards. The CPCA Certification Commission Certification requirements for the in depth institutional self-study visit with CPCA Facilitator Team are created comparable to USDE CHEA approved accrediting agencies’ Evaluator Team in depth institutional self-study visit."
