The U.S. Department of Education celebrates great American schools through their Blue Ribbon Program. This award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating welcoming schools where students master challenging content. The designation of a National Blue Ribbon School is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.
St. Joan of Arc School qualified as a Blue Ribbon School through a consistent track record of standardized test scores within the top 15% in the nation. Each year, less than 0.5% of all schools achieve this award, and less than % of all non-public schools in the United States have ever been recognized with a Blue Ribbon.
