  Blue Ribbon Schools -"A Trademark of Excellence"
OLMC
The United States Department of Education each year recognizes public and private schools for the excellence of their educational programs. A maximum of fifty private schools can be so recognized in any one year. In 2009 Our Lady of Mount Carmel School was honored as a Blue Ribbon School. Only 4% of private and public schools in the United States have been recognized as Blue Ribbon Schools over the 28 years of the program.

What does the Blue Ribbon Schools Award mean?

  • Blue Ribbon Schools are a trademark of excellence. They signal to everyone that they attain and maintain high academic standards, that quality is an integral part of the school program.

  • Blue Ribbon schools tell the story of what can be accomplished in a school which puts student achievement foremost without compromising the co-curricular activities which make for a well-rounded student.

  • Blue Ribbon schools build pride for what has been accomplished and acts as an impetus to not just maintain the success, but to grow it and achieve greater things.

  • To become a Blue Ribbon school is to be nationally recognized as one of a handful of schools which can say to students and parents, “When you leave here to go to another school, you will be prepared for whatever challenges you may face.”


  • Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is honored to be so recognized and pledges to continue to provide the educational experience worthy of a Blue Ribbon School.
