“We choose St. Teresa’s for our children because of its mission statement centered on developing students both intellectually and spiritually. The small class size allows for greater personal attention while the dedicated teachers provide a top-notch quality education and create a family-like learning environment. While St. Teresa’s offers a wide variety of athletics and extra-curricular activities, the most notable impression on us was the committed faculty and staff who continually elevate the reputation of St. Teresa’s academic excellence and instill the message of God in their daily teachings.”

—Chuck and Maryanne Larson
