The Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association (OCSAA) is a collaborative undertaking of the Catholic dioceses in Ohio and is governed by the superintendents of schools who serve as the OCSAA Commission. The purpose of the OCSAA is to strengthen Catholic school identity and mission and to engage Catholic schools in the ongoing improvement of student learning. The State Board of Education has approved the OCSAA Standards as comparable to the Ohio Department of Education's Operating Standards for Ohio's schools. In keeping with the mission of the OCSAA, this process has as its hallmark a commitment to continuous improvement. As each school engages in strategic planning, it moves toward the vision of a high performing school in which students are grounded in their faith life and achieve at high levels.
