Accreditation and Awards

Saint Brigid of Kildare School is accredited by the Ohio Catholic Schools Accrediting Association. As an accredited school, Saint Brigid uses its continuous school improvement plan as a guide for professional development and school growth. Currently, a student learning goal dealing with student reflection and self-assessment and a Catholic identity goal addressing the discipleship and community are the focus of this work. Periodic progress reviews assist the administration in both fulfilling the requirements of the plan and assessing its effectiveness.

In the fall of 2008, Saint Brigid of Kildare School was named a 2008 United States Department of Education Blue Ribbon School, the only school in our diocese and in the county awarded this prestigious award at the time. This award recognizes our commitment to academic achievement, community service, instructional best practices, and professional development.

In February of 2012, our school was named a 2012 recipient of the Catholic Schools for Tomorrow Innovations in Education Award.  The award annually honors schools that have led the way by implementing exemplary, innovative programs.

In the fall of 2014, Saint Brigid of Kildare School was named a National Blue Ribbon School for the second time. Saint Brigid of Kildare is the only school in the entire state of Ohio to receive a second nomination in the last ten years. Saint Brigid of Kildare has received the award in the high-performing schools category, which includes schools that have achieved among the highest scores in both reading and math as measured by state or national standard tests in the most recent year tested, regardless of student demographics.
