Based on the teachings of Jesus, we want our students to be service-oriented members of the community; collaborative workers; self-directed learners; complex thinkers; and effective leaders.
We provide an encompassing curriculum that meets the mental, spiritual, social, physical, and emotional needs of our students.
We are preparing students to assume the duties of Christian citizenship.

School Reviews

The teachers are extremely dedicated. They come in before school begins and lets the students come in for extra help. The parents are so supportive and always help out. The principal is great, he has built the school up in the 3 months he has been here and it will continue to excel. There is such a family atmosphere within the school it is like a second family to all. St. Thecla is a wonderful place to be!!
