St. Hubert Catholic School, a pre-K through eighth-grade parochial school serving Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg, and the surrounding suburban communities, was one of 50 schools nationwide nominated by the Council for American Private Education to be a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School.

The National Blue Ribbon designation is given by the U.S. Department of Education and recognizes public and private elementary, middle and high schools where students perform at very high levels or where significant improvements are being made in students' academic achievement. According to the ED website, a National Blue Ribbon Schools flag overhead has become a mark of excellence in education recognized by everyone from parents to policymakers in thousands of communities.

This nomination is certainly an achievement for St. Hubert Catholic School.

"St. Hubert Catholic School has a long and rich history of providing a solid academic program to the families we serve," principal Vito DeFrisco said, "We are always looking for ways to improve our programs while encouraging our students to do their best."

Marcia Larson, the school's assistant principal added, "This formal nomination validates the expertise and dedication of our faculty as well as the exceptional students attending St. Hubert Catholic School."

The school is now in the process of making its formal application submission to the U.S. Department of Education, which will make its final decision on the schools to receive the National Blue Ribbon designation in September 2014.

Founded in 1961, St. Hubert Catholic School is a pre-K through eighth grade Catholic school serving Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg and the surrounding suburban communities. The school is accredited by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Archdiocese of Chicago.
