Everest Collegiate High School and Academy was awarded 2016 National Blue Ribbon School Honors. The announcement was made on Sept. 28.
Everest is the only private school in the state to receive the Recognized as an Exemplary High Performing School award.
“This award is a direct reflection of the dedication of our faculty and students to academic and institutional excellence,” said Greg Reichert, principal of Everest Collegiate High and Middle Schools. “I could not be more pleased to see their tireless efforts honored through the receipt of the Blue Ribbon Schools Award.”
“The individualized attention we strive for as a school is evident throughout our institution. We have put in place programs at all levels beginning with preschool programming and continuing all the way up to our specialized AP offerings in high school. We are accomplishing amazing things here, but we recognize it is not through our faculty and staff’s efforts alone that it happens. Our achievements would not be possible without the students, parents, and most importantly our acknowledgment of God’s hand in it all,” said Susan Ender, the principal of Everest Academy’s Elementary School.
Reichert and Ender will represent Everest Collegiate High School and Academy in Washington D.C. on Nov. 7-8, when the school will be formally recognized for its achievement at an awards ceremony hosted by the U.S. Department of Education.
