The Division of Health Care Facilities via the Department of Health is responsible for regulating the quality of care facilities throughout Tennessee as well as licensing standards.
Accreditation is optional for private schools, as is registration. All church-related private schools must meet accreditation standards set by one of several Christian school associations. In Tennessee, private schools are categorized by the Board of Education. Teachers in Category I and VII schools must meet state licensing and certification standards, while teachers of Category II and II must only meet the standards set forth by their school. Category IV and V teachers must have a bachelor’s degree. For curriculums, Category I, II and VII schools must meet the state’s graduation requirements. Where testing is concerned, each category school is subject to a range of standards, from testing with public school requirements.
