St Rita Wins American Heart Association Challenge
In order to keep children healthy and active, the American Heart Association developed a new initiative, the Heart Walk & Run Child Health Challenge.
The American Heart Association selected 25 local schools, including St. Rita School, to participate and asked them to make a video showing why they could use new PE equipment. Mr. Mutrie created a video with help from the entire school. Four winners were chosen out of the 25 video submissions and WE WERE ONE OF THEM!

Middle State Accreditation
What is Middle State Accreditation?
Middle State Accreditation is certification that a school has met the standards set forth by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
This is a process where an entity completes a self study. During this review the diocesan Mission and Belief statements, the makeup of the community, educational programs, the services provided, the status of our facilities, and financial stability are all examined.
Diocesan schools have completed the system wide accreditation. Schools were visited by a Middle States Association team in early November 2016. We were awarded accreditation in April 2017 for 7 years.
