St. Maria Goretti School Board was one of ten school boards throughout the United States to receive the Outstanding Board award from the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA). The Board was honored during the association’s annual convention this year in Houston and will serve as guest speakers at next year’s convention in Philadelphia.  

“Each of these boards and councils has proven itself to be a steadfast asset and champion to its school,” said Regina Haney, executive director of the NCEA Boards and Councils department. “They have helped their schools to provide top-notch Catholic education and, in some cases, have forged entirely new paths for their community and schools to thrive.” 

Boards not only set the direction for the school, they also use the varied skills of the members to support and advance the school. Each of these boards has made the challenging strategic moves necessary for their respective schools to continue to have a positive effect on their student’s formation and education.  

NCEA, founded in 1904, is a professional membership organization that provides leadership, direction and service to fulfill the evangelization, catechizing and teaching mission of the church.  NCEA’s 200,000 members include elementary schools, high school, parish religious education programs, and seminaries.  

The Sisters of St. Mary of Namur founded St. Maria Goretti Catholic School in 1954 and is one of the oldest schools in Arlington. St. Maria Goretti School serves students from prekindergarten through eighth grade.
