St. Therese School celebrates Blue Ribbon

Students and faculty at St. Therese Chinese Catholic School celebrated their second Blue Ribbon award on Oct. 19, 2018. The National Blue Ribbon Award is presented to schools based on a school’s overall academic excellence or the school’s progress in closing student achievement gaps. The Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Schools have received 102 Blue Ribbon Awards, more than any other school system – public or private – in the country. St. Therese is one of seven archdiocesan schools recognized this year. The others are: Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, Orland Hills; Queen of All Saints School; Sacred Heart, Winnetka; St. Bede, Ingleside; St. Francis Xavier, Wilmette; and St. Francis de Sales, Lake Zurich.
