It is our goal to educate the St. Teresa community to lead others, and ourselves, in a more virtuous life. We are following a "virtue of the week" program to help us refocus on this mission, and to be better examples to others in our community.

Every Monday we will share the "virtue of the week" and ask that you join us in reflecting and implementing it into your daily lives. Learning to Lead

Admissions Criteria

Incoming Freshman

Before admission to St. Teresa, potential freshmen take the EXPLORE placement exam. This standard indicator and the information gathered from parents, teachers, and grade school transcripts are used to plan the student’s academic program. If the information gathered indicates that St. Teresa does not have the educational program which best serves the needs of the student, the student will not be accepted.

Transfer Students

Students transferring from other high schools are considered for admissions at the beginning of a semester unless the family is moving into the Decatur area. A screening process is used to assure that the student’s former school record and the reason for transfer are consistent with St. Teresa’s mission and goals. When a student is accepted, the high school transcripts are used to plan the student’s academic program at St. Teresa.

Once students are accepted as members of the St. Teresa community, they are expected to maintain a commitment to the mission, goals, and religious values of St. Teresa through the support of the policies outlined in the student handbook and appropriate academic achievement.
