Our goal is to educate the whole child: spirit, mind and body while promoting community service as a way to live out Jesus' message of care and compassion, thus developing confident and responsible Christians.

St. Theresa School is a place where your child can grow in an atmosphere enriched by Christian values.
Nestled in the Oakland Hills, St.Theresa School is a Catholic K-8 educational institution founded in 1960. We serve approximately 285 children and recognize that each student is an individual with strengths and gifts.
St. Theresa creates a nurturing environment where students enjoy learning and our comprehensive curriculum, exceptional teaching staff and resources promote academic excellence.

We offer:
  • faith-based education with daily prayer and religion classes
  • State-of-the-art Event Center that includes a multimedia computer lab, gymnasium, stage for school performances and meeting rooms that are used as additional classroom space
  • Before-After School care program (STEP) to accomodate parents' schedules
  • Diocesan and parish tuition assistance programs
  • A safe and disciplined classroom with the freedom to learn
Co-curricular activities complement our curriculum, foster spiritual growth and develop leadership qualities while building self-esteem. These include Student Council, Yearbook, Chorale (middle school), and CYO and parish-based sports (including volleyball, basketball and cross-country).
Our faculty is comprised of a wonderful blend of skilled veterans and fresh, energetic teachers. These teachers collaborate to create an integrated learning environment that is full of energy and use cutting-edge learning strategies. Promethion boards are located in each classroom to fully utilize technology.
