Statement of Beliefs

  • We believe that religious instruction in St. Teresa School is the underlying reality in which the students` experiences in worship, learning and living achieve coherence and meaning.

  • We believe that all students are children of God. Therefore students are counseled to respect others and exhibit concern and compassion through the use of good manners, affording each other their rightful dignity in all circumstances.

  • We believe the administration and faculty seek to provide a program that is spiritually and academically strong so that students are empowered to share their gifts and talents with a sense of responsibility for service to God and neighbor.

  • We believe the review and development of curriculum is an ongoing process that requires the cooperation of classroom teachers, coordinators and administration to act in conjunction with the guidelines set forth by the office of Catholic Schools of the Camden Diocese.

  • We believe that the educational practices and tools to facilitate learning include an integration of language arts across the curriculum as well as multimedia and technological resources with cooperative learning experiences in all curriculum areas.

  • We believe that both formal and informal evaluations serve to assist teachers in ascertaining student mastery of concepts, the need for remediation, accommodations and or modifications.

  • We believe parents are the primary educators of children and share in the responsibility and coordination of efforts with the faculty to provide a safe environment encouraging a love for learning and the nurturance of self-esteem in children.

  • We believe that weekly class participation in the Holy Eucharist fosters students` growth as members of the Catholic Christian community ready to live out the call of Jesus to serve others.

  • We believe that the whole child is developed spiritually, morally, intellectually, socially and physically by the faith community of school and parish is a safe and loving environment. To this end every effort is made to help students acquire skills, virtues and habits of heart and mind necessary for effective leadership and service.
