Abstract: The study aimed to develop a regional educational quality assurance model for Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) in the Philippines. Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) was the subject of the study. Selected HEIs of CAR were assessed based on the Institutional Sustainability Assessment (ISA) Standards. The respondents of the study are administrators, selected faculty, students, researchers, and community extension and linkages officers of selected universities and colleges of CAR. Descriptive and developmental research designs were used to determine the existing status of the educational institution of selected HEIs of CAR using the ISA standards. It is found out that governance and management, quality of teaching and learning, quality of professional exposure, research and creative work, support for students and relations with the community were important variables in the formulation of mathematical model of regional educational quality assurance. The mathematical model for regional educational quality assurance was formulated with the use of statistical tools and significant predictors of regional educational quality assurance of HEIs in the Philippines were also determined based on the inputs of selected HEIs in CAR.
