What is a 蓝丝带 School?

The National 蓝丝带 School Award is the U.S. Department of Education’s highest honor based on superior 学术 achievement and the implementation of a highly successful, multi-faceted school culture.
St. 澳门金沙网站 was named a 2023 National 蓝丝带 School with the designation of Exemplary High-Performing School in September 2023.

Only 1% of schools have an active 蓝丝带 Award and 353 schools received the award in 2023.

截至2023年,圣. 澳门金沙网站 is…
  • The only high school in Wheaton, public or private, to ever receive a 蓝丝带
  • The only Catholic high school in the western suburbs to ever receive a 蓝丝带
  • One of three Catholic high schools in Illinois with an active blue ribbon
We are also the only school to be named a Microsoft Showcase School and National 蓝丝带 School in the same year.
While public schools are nominated by state officials, private schools must self-nominate and complete an extensive application. The application must include a compelling narrative of school culture, student and faculty engagement, professional development, community partnership, and focus on student leadership that is reviewed by a third-party organization before submission to the U.S. Department of Education

All National 蓝丝带 Schools are featured on the U.S. Department of Education website, where you can read our full application and view our National 蓝丝带 School Profile. Click here to visit the NBRS U.S. Department of Education webpage
