Oregon Federation of Independent Schools


The Oregon Federation of Independent Schools (OFIS) is an organization representing private preschool and K-12 schools in Oregon. Governed by a board of directors reflecting the diversity of Oregon’s private schools, OFIS works to ensure that Oregon private schools are able to operate with a minimum of government influence or control so that parents can choose from a wide range of educational options for their children. OFIS conducts programs and meetings throughout the year and publishes its Oregon View newsletter to keep its members informed of developments and news affecting private schools.

In past years, OFIS has worked hard to ensure that laws and regulations did not unduly restrict private schools operation in Oregon. This has included appearances before the Private School Advisory Committee, the State Board of Education and the Oregon Legislative Committees. Private School Appreciation Day has been proclaimed by the governor every year since 1991, and the legislature and State Board of Education has sometimes joined in its support as well. We can now look forward to Private School Appreciation Day being proclaimed on the first Thursday in February each year.

OFIS works with both state agencies and private organizations to represent the interests of the range of Oregon’s private schools. OFIS has received recognitions and commendations for its work from both the Council for American Private Education (CAPE) and the U.S. Department of Education.

All private schools need to join OFIS now to enable OFIS to do its job. School members are listed in the OFIS Directory distributed to those who inquire about Oregon private schools. Note: Membership must be paid for the current year for directory inclusion. Subject to underwriter approval, member schools are offered preferred insurance rates and dividends based on lower client acquisition costs. OFIS members receive a subscription to CAPE’s Outlook newsletter.
