St. Therese School

St. Therese School is a Roman Catholic elementary and middle school located in Northern Kentucky.
St. Therese School was founded in 1927. It is the mission of St. Therese School to challenge each student to embrace the Gospel, achieve academic excellence, and make a positive difference in the world.
At St. Therese School, we believe that each student is a child of God.
In considering the worth of the individual student, we pursue not only the development of the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social dimension, but we also assist students in developing and strengthening their spiritual and moral capabilities and powers.
Our aim is to form a Catholic community within the school and to attempt to instill in each student true Christian values; to help the children develop self-discipline, personal responsibility, and standards of behavior that come from within - thus showing respect for the rights, feelings, and opinions of others; to provide the students with the skills required for learning, interpersonal relationships, problem solving, and future life situations; to provide a positive learning environment to meet the needs of each student; and to help students to develop a sense of respect for all authority: Church, civic, home, and school by teaching and demanding the proper marks of respect and courtesy.
