I am proud to announce that the Archdiocese of Newark has proudly nominated The OLC School for National Blue Ribbon recognition. To be nominated, the achievement of the school’s students in the most recent year tested places the school in the top 15 percent in the nation in reading (or English language arts) and mathematics as measured by a nationally normed test.
A total of 420 public and non-public schools could be nominated each year, with only 50 applicants advancing after the application process is completed. We are at the threshold of the application process and need to explain what makes OLC more than just high test scores.
As we go through the Blue Ribbon process, it will help us prepare for the Middle States reaccreditation process, which the faculty and staff as well as administrators will undertake this year. In a short time, you will receive surveys to complete. Parents’ input is important in the reaccreditation process. Please be on the lookout for the survey information shortly.
As a result of the work of the faculty and staff, students and parents have done together, we have been nominated for Blue Ribbon recognition. Together we have made OLC the Place to Be!
With His blessing,
Anna Mae Stefanelli
