Blue Ribbon Status and Accreditation
In 1999, St. Rita Catholic School was selected as one of 266 schools from across the nation to be a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. This school recognition and improvement program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and is awarded to elementary and secondary schools that distinguish themselves as among the nation’s most successful institutions of learning. The group of schools chosen are judged to have strong leadership, high-quality teaching, an appropriate and up to-date curriculum, policies and practices that insure a safe environment conducive to learning, strong parental interest and involvement, and evidence that the school helps its students achieve, no matter what their ability level.
St. Rita Catholic School is accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference Accreditation Commission, the body designated by the Texas Education Agency as the governing body for Catholic schools in Texas and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Our most recent accreditation occurred in the spring of 2013.
