SFA in National Blue Ribbon Schools 2013

NBRS-SFA-2013On September 24, 2013, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the names of 286 schools identified by the U.S. Department of Education as the National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2013.

St. Francis Academy was honored with inclusion in this elite group as our standardized test scores in reading and math placed us among the top – performing schools in the nation and the state.

Fifty private schools were among the awardees this year including four Catholic elementary schools from the Archdiocese of Newark. The Council for American Private Education nominates private schools. All winning schools will be honored at an awards ceremony November 18 – 19 in Washington D. C. Sr. Dora, Sr. Una and Ms. Savage will attend the ceremony.

“Excellence in education matters, and we should honor the schools that are leading the way to prepare students for success in college and careers,” said Director Duncan. “National Blue Ribbon Schools represent examples of educational excellence, and their work reflects the belief that every child in America deserves a world – class education.”
