About Us

The Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools (OACCS) is a statewide association for proprietary, post-secondary private career colleges and schools.
WE ACT AS THE VOICE FOR OHIO’S CAREER INSTITUTIONS.
We regularly talk with legislators and regulators, both in Columbus and Washington, to showcase our member schools’ unique ability to achieve successful results for Ohio’s students and employers. Read more.
WE EDUCATE.
For over 40 years, we’ve offered seminars and workshops to the staff, faculty and administrators of career colleges and schools. View our upcoming events.
WE ENABLE EDUCATION THROUGH SCHOLARSHIPS.
Through the efforts of the member schools, we’ve helped over 280 Ohio graduating high school seniors further their education through the OhioLEADS! Scholarship Program. In addition, we’ve initiated the Workforce Tuition Scholarship Program for any current or future student attending our member schools. Read more.
