Mount Saint Joseph Academy has been recognized for the third time in 21 years as a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School. The Mount received this recognition in 1993 and 1998.
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honored 287 public and 50 private elementary, middle, and high schools where students either achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap. The award affirms the hard work of our girls, educators, families and communities in creating a safe and welcoming environment where students master challenging content.
The Mount was recognized in the following performance category, based on all student scores, subgroup student scores and graduation rates:
- Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests. Student subgroup performance and high school graduation rates are also at the highest levels.
It is because of the caring and tireless efforts of the entire Mount community that we are receiving this honor and are able to continue providing a rigorous and rewarding academic program. We are grateful for your support and commitment to Mount Saint Joseph Academy!
