Lorton Station Elementary is one of 57 schools across Virginia—along with Belvedere Elementary School—named Title I Distinguished Schools by the Virginia Board of Education. The National Title I Distinguished Schools Program publicly recognizes qualifying Title I schools for the outstanding academic achievements of their students. The program has been in place since 1996, highlighting the success of hundreds of schools in one of two categories:
- Category 1: Exceptional student performance for two or more consecutive years.
- Category 2: Closing the achievement gap between students.
Title I, the cornerstone of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, is the largest federally funded pre-college education program in the United States. It provides funding to school districts across the country to aid in the education of economically disadvantaged students.
