Quality Education

What is a Blue Ribbon School?

Each year since 1982, the U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon Award honors public and private K-12 schools that are academically superior. The Department seeks out schools whose students attain and maintain high academic goals. Blue Ribbon Schools serve as models for other schools across the nation.

“No matter what paths our lives take or when we attended St. Gregory, we share a very special bond as alumni. The School Sisters of Notre Dame, and all those that followed, gave us a spiritual foundation and a commitment to service that impacts every aspect of our lives. It is part of who we are.”
