Mission Statement and Philosophy

St. Therese of Jesus Catholic School serves a multicultural population through messages of faith, academic programs, and service opportunities. The educational team challenges students to practice their faith in Christ while becoming knowledgeable and skilled citizens.

We believe

  • that we are to accept, respect and share with one another as we foster an awareness of Jesus’ presence in our school community.
  • that the message of Jesus must be imparted by the principal and faculty to the school community and the larger parish family.
  • that our educational program must nurture a child of God spiritually, physically, and aesthetically, and that it requires strengthening and updating to provide academic excellence.
  • that every child needs to feel responsibility for his/her own education.
