The Collegium Scientificum is a system of semi-public institutions of higher education in and around Urceopolis. The Collegium is also responsible for the supervision for all public schools in the Apostolic Kingdom of Urcea and all standardized testing, as well as the production and administration of state tests and Regents Examinations. In addition, the Collegium oversees higher education, cultural institutions such as museums and libraries, and the licensing of numerous professions.

The Collegium is jointly administered by the Government of Urcea and the Order of Friars Minor, which owns the Abbey and college grounds, and is headed by the Abbot-Rector of His Most Christian Majesty's Collegium Scientificum, who is always a Friar. The position of Abbot-Rector, currently filled by Fr. Seán Fox, OFM, is a Concilium Purpaidá-level position and is one of two non-partisan positions on the Purpaidá.

The Office for Academic Standards is the part of the Collegium Scientificum responsible for creating academic standards and regulations for every public school in Urcea, which are administered by local authorities. The head of the Office, the Commissioner of National Academic Standards, is appointed by the Abbot-Rector with the approval of the Chancellor and Temporary President of the Concilium Daoni. The Office promulgates annual rules and regulations for conditions in Urcea's schools, minimum performance standards, and established general guidelines for curriculum in consultation with the Chamber of Regents of the Collegium Scientificum. The curriculum standards imposed by the Office are not specific beyond general concepts and ideas that must be taught, though the standards include a short list of works of literature that must be included in an education at various grade levels, such as Republic, Utopia, and other fundamental classics. Since the abolition of the Index Librorum Prohibitorum, the Office has also issued lists of books which should not be kept in school libraries depending on the level of education. The Collegium Scientificum itself specifically retains copies of these "regulated books" in its campus libraries, albeit in a specifically marked section of said libraries.
