Pastor's Message

Greetings and Welcome to the website of The Academy of St. Therese.

I know that everyone says that their school is very special but in our case it is absolutely true. We are special because of the many elements that make up our St. Therese family. We are blessed with a dedicated faculty and staff who provide our children with quality education in Math, Science, Language and the Arts.

The Academy also provides our children with a very safe and secure environment in which to learn and grow. Through the good work of the Home School Association, parents and families are able to participate and be active in the overall education of their children.

Of course, the most dynamic aspect of our school community is that it is faith based. St. Therese of Lisieux was a 19 th century Carmelite sister whose simple way of loving God continues to inspire faith and gentleness around the world. It is under her protection that our children thrive.

The children get a wonderful Catholic education and they are formed by the values of the teachings of the Church. They experience the Love of God through the care and concern that is shown to them. They are taught to show that same love and concern to one another. All in all, the Academy it is a very happy and holy place to be. 

May God continue to bless you and may this new academic year be a time of great grace for your children and our parish/school community.  

With Love,  
Fr. Sam Citero, O. Carm.
