International accreditation[edit]

2007 saw MGC New Life being granted a seven-year international accreditation from the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA), a joint venture that is the first for both organizations. The reorganization of CITA caused MGC New Life's accreditation to be absorbed into AdvancED, making it accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI).[2]

MGC New Life is the first school in the Philippines to be accredited by AdvancED and NCA CASI and the second school in the Philippines accredited by ACSI.[3]
