Saint Theresa Catholic School’s mission is to furnish students with an outstanding Classical education informed by the wisdom of the Catholic intellectual and spiritual tradition. We provide a rigorous Liberal Arts curriculum that gives our students a firm foundation in faith and morals. By these means, we strive to form students who have a genuine love of God and the Church and who are prudent, compassionate, kind, courageous, and generous in their service of one another and to others.
Greeting from the Headmaster
Welcome to Saint Theresa Catholic School! If your family is already part of our school community, we thank you for all that you have already contributed to make Saint Theresa Catholic School the great place that it is. If you are just joining us, I think that you and your children have much to look forward to at STCS. If you are considering becoming part of the STCS community, we encourage you to further explore the resources on our website and contact us at 281-494-1157 to learn more about our school. We are delighted to be able to welcome you and to collaborate with you for the benefit of your family and your sons and daughters.
All of us at STCS are committed to providing our students with an education focused on the timeless wisdom of the Catholic intellectual tradition. Through our liberal arts curriculum, students acquire the knowledge, skills, and character that can liberate them from shyness and selfishness and help them cultivate virtue. Our goal is to acquaint STCS students with the best ideas humanity has conceived and the noblest causes that men and women have served throughout the centuries. This form of education, when deeply informed by the riches of Church teaching and practice, cultivates both the mind and the heart so as to graduate students who are not only knowledgeable but also virtuous. With the aid of the best minds and spirits our civilization has produced, we aim to help our students become their best selves.
To this end, we provide our students with a solid introduction to the ancient Trivium: the study of Logic, Grammar, and Rhetoric. We require them to study Latin and classical literature. We offer them opportunities to steep themselves in the Music, Art, and Architecture of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. We set aside time to pray and worship together. We compete both on the athletic field and in the arena of academic enterprise. We also look for daily, as well as special, opportunities for students to “give back” to the community and to cultivate the virtues of compassion and loving service to others. We do all of these things to refine our minds and bodies, but most importantly, to cultivate our character and nurture our spirits.
We invite parents and other family members of our students to join us in the exhilarating quest for “the permanent things”—those transcendent values that endure. By providing a holistic experience that cultivates the body, mind, heart, and spirit, each student at STCS is prepared to advance academically, socially, and spiritually. The achievements of our students, from their superior test scores to the selfless service projects they complete, testify to the soundness of our educational model. We are elated that your family has decided to be a part of the labor of wisdom, love, and service that is STCS.
Please feel free to stop by my office any time for a visit. Hospitality may be a particular hallmark of the Benedictines, but it’s also one that we proudly practice at Saint Theresa Catholic School.
In grateful service,
Mark A. Newcomb, Ph.D.
