Our Lady of the Lake School, a 2011 Blue Ribbon School, received its second consecutive nomination for the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program by the Council for American Private Education (CAPE).

OLL is one of 50 private schools throughout the nation to have its application submitted to the U.S. Department of Education for further review. The list of schools selected for the 2017 National Blue Ribbon will be announced in September.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools, schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels.

“Our Lady of the Lake School is so honored to have this opportunity once again and we are so proud of our students, teachers, staff, parents, and church community for their dedication, enthusiasm, and belief in Catholic education,” commented Principal Benjamin Ronquillo, M.Ed.  “We continue to provide high quality academics, moral and ethical values, caring teachers, supportive communities, faith and much more since our first National Blue Ribbon in 2011,” Ronquillo concluded.
