We, the St. Teresa of Avila Catholic School community, proclaim Christ is the reason for this school. We are committed to providing a safe, structured and caring learning environment dedicated to developing each student's God-given potential.
Philosophy, Goals and Objectives
The students of St. Teresa of Avila Catholic School community learn to create and maintain an environment that will maximize the chances that they will grow in faith and knowledge. With staff as facilitators, the students will model Christ, acquire knowledge, and serve God in the community, respect individuals of all faiths and cultures, value effort, and become productive citizens. Students will demonstrate the confidence, articulation, and well-mannered behavior consistent with good citizenship and self-discipline.
Recognizing the primacy of the parents in the education of every child, the school community will work together with families to accomplish the goals of providing a solid Catholic Christian foundation, sense of community, and educational excellence in all areas of the curriculum.
