The curriculum for St. Theresa Catholic School is provided by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, in full compliance with the requirements of the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department and the Texas Education Agency. Our academic program is designed to provide an educational environment that challenges the average and the accelerated student.

Religious education is the heart of education in St. Theresa Catholic School. The religious dimension of the school extends throughout all subject areas and all school activities. Daily prayer, in addition to weekly Mass and special liturgical celebrations, provide a framework in which Gospel values can flourish. Formal religious instruction in the Catholic tradition begins in pre-kindergarten and continues throughout all grade levels.
