Philosophy

St. Theresa School is a Catholic community rooted in Gospel teachings directed to the education of each student and his/her academic, social, and spiritual development. A strong, dynamic curriculum strives to integrate faith and life, independent thinking, and academic excellence. Faculty and staff acknowledge parents as their children’s primary educators. Together as a community, we work in partnership to guide students toward becoming mature Christian decision makers who:

  • Carry out Christ’s message
  • Are self-directed learners and ethical, responsible citizens who are prepared to meet and respond to the challenges of a global society
  • Work for social justice, human dignity, and a more peaceful world
