Dr. Al Janney and a group of his peers met in August, 1972, in Miami, Florida, to form the non-profit corporation called the American Association of Christian Schools.Dr. Janney
then served from 1972 until 1992 as the Association's first president.At the first recorded AACS board meeting, held in Dallas, Texas, on November 30, 1972, Dr. Janney
set forth the question: "Where is the separatist organization, on a national level, that will champion our cause?"Thus was the need for AACS
clearly voiced and firmly established.AACS
became a national outgrowth of its predecessor, the Florida Association of Christian Schools
(FACS), which had been founded in 1967 to help its member schools in Florida.Having experienced the hurdles and opposition being thrown up against the fledgling but mushrooming Christian school movement in the United States, Dr. Janney
began traveling to other states in an effort to help them organize Christian school associations.
...Dr. Janney retired in 1992 as AACS President after twenty years of faithful and distinguished service on behalf of Christian education.
