On September 29, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced that
St. Theresa School has been named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence for the second time in our history! We previously achieved this distinction in 2006.
The Blue Ribbon award signifies that St. Theresa School is in the top 15% of all schools in the State as determined by standardized test scores. The Blue Ribbon award also signifies a high level of excellence of the school's academic program and in the teachers who deliver the program.
It is extremely exciting and entirely appropriate that this award comes at the very moment we anticipate breaking ground to update the school campus to enliven the school program for the 21st century demands of college and career, maintaining our focus on the St. Theresa way – education steeped in the Faith and in a tradition of excellence.
The U.S. Department of Education will honor St. Theresa School, along with the other achieving public and private schools, at a recognition ceremony on November 9-10 in Washington, D.C.
Our congratulations to the parish, families, students, and staff who, since the last Blue Ribbon award in 2006, maintain the tradition of excellence of St. Theresa School.
We will celebrate this achievement with a Mass of Thanksgiving on Tuesday,
October 13 at 8:00am. Please mark your calendars and make plans to join us.
