More About Boarding Schools in Ohio
Each Child, Our Future is the Ohio Department of Education's shared plan for ensuring that each student is challenged, prepared, and empowered for his or her future by way of an excellent prekindergarten through grade 12 (PreK-12) education. The plan's purpose: to lift aspirations, create hope and excitement, guide the development of state-level education policies and promote high-quality educational practices across the state.
Ohio's education system is similar to those found in other states. At the State level, the Ohio Department of Education, which the Ohio State Board of Education oversees, governs primary and secondary educational institutions. At the municipal level, there are approximately 700 school districts statewide.
Ohio has two types of private schools. One type is a Chartered Nonpublic School, and the other is a Non-Chartered, Non-Tax Supported School. The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) charters boarding schools on behalf of the State Board of Education, whereas other states may accredit their boarding schools. Although chartered schools must report and submit many documents to the agency, please note that ODE does not maintain student records or transcripts for any students in Ohio. Such documents are retained locally at either the boarding school or the local school district where the school is located.
Chartered nonpublic schools are private schools and boarding schools that have provided evidence of adherence to the Operating Standards for Ohio Schools and are therefore officially chartered by the State Board of Education. These boarding schools can choose to offer a religious-based curriculum. Credits and diplomas from such schools must be recognized by other Ohio chartered schools (public and nonpublic).
Non-chartered non-tax-supported schools (NCNT) are those that, because of truly held religious beliefs, choose not to be chartered by the Ohio State Board of Education. Such boarding schools are required to file a report with the Ohio Department of Education annually. The Ohio Department of Education does not have the legal authority to regulate the curriculum taught in non-chartered schools.
To earn a high school diploma in Ohio, students must complete the courses and requirements and then choose a pathway to show that they are ready for college or a job. The boarding school counselor will give students more details about their options. Students must receive instruction in economics and financial literacy and complete at least two semesters of fine arts.
Ohio boarding schools offer their students academic excellence, as well as the possibility to explore the state's diversity from its big-city amenities to the charm and comfort of its historic small towns.
