Our Blue Ribbon Award

Blue Ribbon School

What is a Blue Ribbon School?

The U.S. Department of Education’s National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes schools where students perform at very high levels of academic achievement. Saint Rita School students consistently perform in or above 10% of the nation’s schools in both reading and mathematics. A National Blue Ribbon Award, awarded to selected schools, has become a trademark of excellence and a symbol of quality recognized by everyone from parents to policy-makers in thousands of communities across the nation.
