The Ohio School for the Deaf (OSD) was established in 1829, making it the fifth oldest residential school in the country. Throughout our 170 year history, student achievement was tied to access to American Sign Language. The Ohio School for the Deaf Alumni Association is responsible for the nation's only elderly care facility designed for and operated by Deaf persons.
OSD operates under the auspices and in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Education. A comprehensive kindergarten through grade 12 educational program provides a sequential curriculum for achievement in academic and career development areas which is comparable to Ohio's public schools. Support services include speech therapy, psychological testing, counseling, technology instruction, library/media services, and transition to adult life. The residential program provides a wide variety of student development activities, athletics, and recreation.
The mission of the Ohio School for the Deaf (OSD) directs OSD to be an educational facility and resource center on deafness that: provides comprehensive education for Ohio's Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing students which encourages independence and life-long learning, promotes social and cultural awareness, prepares students to attain their potential and become contributing members of their communities all via a barrier-free communication environment using American Sign Language (ASL) and English.
