St. Michael School is accredited by the Ohio Catholic Schools Accrediting Association (OCSAA). As an accredited school, St. Michael uses its continuous school improvement plan as a guide for professional development and school growth.
The Guidelines for Ohio’s Catholic Schools outlines the process through which a school seeks and maintains accreditation. 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 academic goals at high levels.
OCSAA accreditation also requires schools to show evidence that they are implementing OCSAA Standards. The State Board of Education has approved these Standards as comparable to the Operating Standards for Ohio’s Schools. Through the OCSAA accreditation process, a new Catholic school can apply for a charter from the state of Ohio and existing Catholic schools can maintain their state charters.
