St. Therese Carmelite School

We, the Faith Community of Saint Therese School embrace the Spirit of the Carmelite Order that established our school based on the Gospel values of Jesus Christ.
We exists as a living example of a Catholic Family Community in which all members assume responsibility for the education of the students from Kindergarten through Eighth Grades.
We recognize the development of each child as a responsibility to their spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and creative development in a safe and supportive atmosphere.
There is a close cooperation with parents, the primary educators of our students.
This collaboration provides our students with opportunities for growth in the Catholic faith, Christian responsibility, and living and learning skills for the future.
We provide a strong education in all curriculum areas, especially in these subjects: vocabulary, reading, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science.
These skills give our students a firm foundation for success in high school.
In this Catholic-Christian environment, we impart skills and values so that our students are able to cope with pressures of life and the modern world.
