Admission to Saint Theresa Catholic School is available to families seeking a Catholic education for their child(ren). The success of each individual student is a priority when it comes to acceptance. Saint Theresa Catholic School strives to welcome all students.
Careful consideration is given when admitting students to Saint Theresa Catholic School to ensure a “match” between family and school values. Families are invited to contact the Admissions Office where they can begin the inquiry process. Next steps include application, transcript request, teacher recommendation, placement assessment, and parent/student interviews.
In addition, any medical or educational evaluations must be submitted for review before determining acceptance. After services are identified, a Student Support Plan (SSP) will be drafted to clearly identify the responsibilities of the student, parents, and school. Recurring meetings may be scheduled to ensure the student’s ongoing success.
Admission decisions are made on a case-by-case basis after careful review of the student’s academic transcripts, teacher recommendation, placement assessment, Shadow Day experience (if applicable) and interviews. Acceptance is based on the probability of the student’s success at Saint Theresa Catholic School and their ability to embrace our vision.
New students will enter a probationary period to ensure their success and compliance with the expectations of our school.
