Camden, NJ (PRWEB) October 19, 2014
The U.S. Secretary of Education announced the 2014 Blue Ribbon Schools, naming four Catapult Learning schools among the fifty private schools in the country that received this distinction. The Council for American Private Education (CAPE) names the Blue Ribbon Schools each year which are recognized for their achievements in academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps.
In 32 years, just 7,900 public and private schools nationwide have been selected for this esteemed award. Schools are chosen in one of two performance categories—Exemplary High Performing Schools and Exemplary Improving Schools—based standardized test scores, subgroup student scores, and graduation rates. Nominations are submitted from the top education official in every state and U.S. territory.
The Catapult Learning partner schools recognized include St. Thomas More Parish School in Houston, TX, Assumption School in Mooristown, NJ, Immaculate Conception School in Townson, MD, and School of the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Baltimore, MD. All four schools were selected in the Exemplary High Performing Schools category.
Stuart Udell, CEO of Catapult Learning says, "I am proud of the accomplishments made by each of our partner schools awarded with the 2014 Blue Ribbon School distinction. Our mission is to help every child reach his or her fullest potential, and our partnership with schools awarded the Blue Ribbon affirms that our hard work is making a difference."
This year’s awardees will be honored at a recognition ceremony on November 10-11 in Washington, DC.
