St. Teresa Catholic School, an integral component of St. Teresa Parish, serves the community by passing on the Catholic faith and values while immersing the student within a Christ-centered environment.

A continued partnership of St. Teresa Parish, families, and staff within a tradition of academic excellence will provide students the opportunity to learn about the Church’s teachings, to incorporate them in their daily life, and to take an active role in addressing social concerns.

We are committed to serve the children and families who desire a Catholic education.

Philosophy of St. Teresa School:

Education at St. Teresa School is a gradual development of the human person through the inspiration of the Divine. It is a continuation and an enrichment of what is begun in the home that strives to develop the spiritual, academic, social, and psychological aspects of the child. The philosophy of the school is based on the principle that Catholic schools are to be communities of faith, in which the Christian message, the experience of community, worship, and social concern are integrated in the total education experiences of the students, their parents and members of the faculty.

Our school, in accordance with the above principles established by the United States bishops in their most recent Catechetical Directory, Sharing the Light of Faith, focuses on trying to maintain the highest possible standards of education. As a faith community and as members of an educational institution, the faculty of St. Teresa’s determines specific objectives each year to further the accomplishment of these goals.

In order to achieve the knowledge and skills required by our society for genuine participation and leadership in the world of tomorrow, as well as to achieve the openness of mind and generosity of spirit needed to attain a sincere concern for all humanity, it is presumed that parents who enroll their children in St. Teresa School will share this responsibility for their children.
