The very etymology of words like “school,” “academy,” and “academic” acknowledge how indebted human knowledge is to religion. In a culture which is becoming increasingly secular, St. Theresa Catholic School is particularly concerned to foster a deep appreciation for the harmony of faith and reason. Faith and reason are, as has often been said, the two wings which enable humanity to fulfill its transcendental destiny.
At St. Theresa Catholic, we are committed to Classical Catholic education. Classical educators are particularly concerned to reconnect with that long tradition of liberal education which has been largely forgotten in the innumerable and frequent ideological revolutions that mark the history of modern educational theory. As Classical educators, we feel that some of the perennial hallmarks of a solid education are missing in the typical American school, and we intend to recover those elements through an educational philosophy calculated for success.
