“What first impressed me about the St. Teresa of Avila Pre-K program was the class size and excellent student to teacher ratio.  My child was shy, and being a part of a smaller instructional group was important.  What I found in return was so much more.  My child is now in the middle school program at St. Teresa’s, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the exceptional teachers, wonderful families and faith- filled community that is our school!”
