The Florida Association of Academic Nonpublic Schools (FAANS) is an umbrella agency with 23 Member Organizations, including 13 Accrediting Associations, representing over 1,300 nonpublic schools and their more than 300,000 students throughout the State of Florida. Its membership represents all of the major nonpublic school faith-based and non-sectarian Associations in Florida and thus encompasses the majority of the nonpublic schools within Florida’s 67 counties.
FAANS serves as a vital link between nonpublic schools and the Florida Legislature and the Florida Department of Education. It provides information for the many inquiries from parents, the media, national school organizations, and government agencies for information related to nonpublic school education in Florida.
FAANS is the Florida member of the Council for American Private Education (CAPE) in Washington, D.C.
"An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't."
