St. Teresa High School, committed to the development of the whole person, seeks to integrate faith and life by instructing students in human knowledge and skills in the light of the gospel. Educationally, it strives to equip students with the professional and technical competencies to function in a modern society. Emotionally, it strives to guide students to an understanding of self and to affective/effective communication. Spiritually, St. Teresa seeks to lead students, through prayer and instruction, to a deeper and more faith-filled sense of their own worth as gifted individuals and to a personal experience with God.
Building upon this personal development, students should be able to become signs of love and concern to their families and friends. Extending this care, students, imbued with reverence for life and Christian commitment, should be able to meet the social problems of the world and contribute to their solution in a spirit of justice and peace.
St. Teresa, named for St. Teresa of Avila, endeavors to extend the integration of faith and life beyond the curriculum to the total school atmosphere through the lives and interaction of all members of the school community and through diverse opportunities for prayer, worship and service.
