Academic Accreditations

Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association

In 1994, the Bishops of Ohio formed the Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association (OCSAA). The 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 engage Catholic schools in the ongoing improvement of student learning.

In keeping with the mission of the OCSAA, the OCSAA process has as its hallmark a commitment to continuous improvement. As a member of the OCSAA, Ursuline High School engages in strategic planning to ensure a high-performing school in which students are grounded in their faith life and achieve at high levels.

OCSAA accreditation also requires Ursuline High School to show evidence that they are implementing OCSAA Standards. The State Board of Education has approved these Standards as comparable to the ODE’s Operating Standards for Ohio’s Schools. Through the OCSAA accreditation process, Ursuline High School maintains its state charter.

Ursuline High School is fully accredited by the OCSAA and possesses a charter from the State of Ohio to operate.

Ursuline High School is fully accredited by the AdvancED Accreditation Commission, the national commission that confers the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) accreditation seal.
