GOOGLE My Daughter had been to two Catholic Schools and one Public School before Academy of St Therese and it had been a disaster. When she started St. Therese it was a great, loving, family like atmosphere where she felt safe, secure and was able to greatly improve her academics successfully. She has grown in confidence and knowledge thanks to the wonderful educators and staff there! I'll always be grateful to Academy of St. Therese!!! June 2018

This is a place to "grow" your children, academically, spiritually and socially. The academy of St. Therese has, over the past 60 years, consistently provided a strong academic challenge for its students, one that brings out the best in each child. At the same time, they are surrounded by wonderful teachers who in a loving environment, emphasize respect and kindness towards others. For sure, Christ is the head of this school!! September 2017


AST is a terrific school with a great education and a caring supportive staff at its core. When we were checking out other Catholic schools in the area, AST was hands down our winner. Our Principal Mr. Clark is a hands on principal and runs the school incredibly well. He genuinely cares about his staff and the students. The Arts program is incredible as well. It is a school that has a firm foundation on education, faith and camaraderie. Our children love their school. Parent 3 months ago

The Academy of St. Therese is more than just a Great School it is a loving community of Families, children, teachers, staff, and clergy. The family like feel is like nothing I have ever seen in a school before, and it makes for a well rounded education. The administration and faculty are amazing educators and mentors for our children. When it comes to the BEST IN CLASS education, The Academy of St. Therese in Cresskill is worth every penny and then some. Ten STARS!! ********** Parent March 2018

December 22, 2017 · My 4 girls had a wonderful all-around experience here. If you're thinking of Catholic school for your family, this is the place!!

June 11 at 8:35pm · Having our daughter attend Academy of St. Therese was the best decision we made for her. Not only did her academic performance improve, but more importantly, the building of her character and disposition unfolded at this amazing school. Wonderful, welcoming and dedicated staff. Thank you all for everything you taught ___!
