Blue Ribbon Award

Congratulations St. Germaine!

Nationally Recognized Blue Ribbon School since 2007.

In 2007, St. Germaine was one of only 50 private schools in the nation (and the first in Oak Lawn) to be named a “Blue Ribbon School” by the U.S. Department of Education.

This distinctive honor recognizes that St. Germaine School is among the top 10% of all the schools in the nation based on nationally-normed tests.

Our school continues to adhere to the principles that garnered our “Blue Ribbon” status with our high-quality curriculum, dedication of our teachers and staff, and unwavering expectations for student performance. This is regularly reflected in our outstanding test scores.

St. Germaine School was included among only 50 private and parochial schools on the list.  We qualified based on our most recent test scores and a description of the many innovative programs we offer.  The award places St. Germaine in the top 10% of the nation.

The Blue Ribbon Award ceremony took place in Washington DC on November 12-13, 2007.  We planned several celebrations with our school and parish community after the awards.
