WILMINGTON — Rising test scores, high school acceptances and community service are among the things a group of eighth-grade students at St. John the Beloved said set their school apart and why it has been recognized as a 2016 Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.

St. John’s is one of five schools in Delaware to receive the designation. Christ the Teacher Catholic School was also honored. No more than 50 nonpublic schools nationwide may be named Blue Ribbon schools in a given year. Read more »

Mount Aviat Academy named National Blue Ribbon School

By

CHILDS, Md. – Mount Aviat Academy has been named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education, the school announced Tuesday. The Blue Ribbon program recognizes public and private elementary, middle and high schools where students perform at high levels or where significant improvements are being made in academic achievement, the school said.

The honor is bestowed on just 50 private schools nationwide.

“I’m so proud of our teachers and the curriculum we offer, not to mention our outstanding students,” said Oblate Sister John Elizabeth, the principal.

Students heard the news at an assembly on the afternoon of Sept. 30. They were surprised when they left the assembly to find ice cream trucks waiting for them in the parking lot.

Mount Aviat is operated by the Oblate Sisters of St. Francis de Sales. The school will be honored at a ceremony Nov. 11 in Washington, D.C.
