School Reviews

The Academy of St. Therese is a wonderful school community, they instill the morals and values that we practice at home to our children. The curriculum is very competitive and engaging it challenges our children to work to their utmost potential, something that shows in the results of their test scores, awards and report cards. Our children began their education in the Preschool level and over the years we have found all of the teachers, ones our children have had and ones yet to come to be caring and nurturing educators who put the best interests of all the students first. The children are involved in after school clubs and activities they are on the basketball team and enjoy participating in the award winning choir, the school concerts, plays and shows. The leadership is present and available to the parents and students they are progressive and committed to the spiritual and academic education of the children. the tuition is affordable and actually less expensive then most of the other area Catholic Schools. Our children are very happy and we could not be more pleased with our choice to send them to the Academy of St. Therese.
