"Intellectual growth means much more than an increasing competence in the academic content of the curriculum. We must endeavor to stimulate in the child a love for learning, an attitude of inquiry, a passion for truth and beauty, a questioning mind." ~National Middle School Association
St. Theresa Catholic School is a faith-filled middle school (grades 5-8) created on the foundation of proven middle school research, where healthy partnerships between students and educators provide the core for an effective school. Young adolescents are the central focus of our school; we are responsive to their development, and we provide a challenging, empowering and equitable atmosphere for learning. We allow for student voice, choice and an opportunity to be involved in the local and international community. Students are encouraged to actively participate in the many facets of life in the school. In so doing, they contribute to a vibrant and caring school community.
We strive to meet the academic, social and spiritual needs of our middle school students in a Catholic environment. Students are immersed in academic courses, enhanced with option programming and extra-curricular opportunities.
St. Theresa Catholic School is a part of the Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) family, and is part of Alberta's publicly-funded education system.
