    Students with handicaps can enroll at St. Therese School unless the handicap seriously impairs the student's ability to complete successfully the school's academic program or unless the school cannot provide sufficient care or make reasonable accommodations for the student.

  • Registration Documents:

    Parents should provide these documents at registration time to ensure placement on the class lists. Students with all documents current will be placed on the class lists first.

  • Final Acceptance:

    St. Therese School staff review all applications for admissions to insure as many students as possible receive a Catholic education in a setting where spiritual development, academic performance and personal leadership are engendered and encouraged. Occasionally, we may not accept an application because specific academic modifications, behavior/attitude needs or social/emotional needs are beyond the competency of our staff. These students are referred to other learning centers which have these learning modifications.
