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

WYSE 2013 Results

Congratulations to our WYSE team.  St. Teresa students earned first place at Richland Community College Regional on February 6.  WYSE is an academic competition sponsored by the University of Illinois, School of Engineering and stands for Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering.

We are especially proud of the students that earned one of the top 3 scores in their division.

Cailin Jerger               2nd in Biology and 2nd in Chemistry

Minho Cho                   3rd in Mathematics and 2nd in Physics

Samuel Kenzeman      3rd in Mathematics

Chris Miller                 2nd in Engineering Graphics

Femi Oladipupo           1st in Chemistry and 1st in Mathematics

Madison Velchek        2nd in Chemistry

McKenna Wilson         3rd in English


The team qualified to compete next month at Eastern Illinois University Sectional. In 2010 and 2011 St. Teresa finished 2nd each year at Eastern Illinois and advanced to the state competition where they finished 11th in 2010 and 12th in 2011.

Commenting on the number of students that earned high scores, St. Teresa’s coach Paul Furman said, “This is not a competition where one or two outstanding students can dominate the scoring.  A team consists of fourteen students, with each student taking an exam in two subjects.  The schools that do the best have enough talented students to spread their scoring to all the subjects.  We had seven students with one of the top three scores in their subject.  That is an outstanding accomplishment, and demonstrates that our students are receiving a quality education.”
