DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - A Centerville school has been identified as a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.
Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced Incarnation Catholic School was one of 50 private schools nationwide to be awarded the title.
“Excellence in education matters and we should honor the schools that are leading the way to prepare students for success in college and careers,” said Secretary Duncan. “National Blue Ribbon schools represent examples of educational excellence, and their work reflects the belief that every child in America deserves a world-class education.”
Incarnation was nominated by the Council for American Private Education.

Incarnation is one of 15 Ohio schools to be awarded with the designation. All of the schools will be honored in a November ceremony in Washington D.C. where they will be given a special flag to fly.
