To achieve that, we:

  • Uphold the right of freedom of choice in selecting God-centered education
  • Represent and support member schools as legitimate and equal partners with public schools in Michigan
  • Provide a framework for communication among government agencies, non-public and public educators at all levels

Our Core Values


For more than 45 years MANS has advocated for and empowered stakeholders of Michigan’s non-public schools.

Professional Development

When parents choose nonpublic schools, they know that their students will interact daily with qualified educators and administrators.

MNSAA Accreditation

Accreditation is an internal and external review process that identifies strategies for building the best possible educational program for learners.


MANS is committed to leveraging creative opportunities and resources to meet member’s needs.
