Admissions

Application Process for 2017/2018

St. Theresa School is committed to the highest standards of learning for all of our students and to providing a classroom environment that is most conducive to learning. It is our commitment to keep families together and have the necessary space available during the registration process to take siblings of current students prior to offering seats to other parishioners and the community.

Please submit your application and supporting documentation** in your designated enrollment phase.  All applications will be verified for phase accuracy.  Applications received that do no qualify for that particular enrollment phase will be discarded and application fee returned.  Forms cannot be submitted without payment verification.

**Supporting documentation and application fee may be mailed or dropped off at the school office during school office hours (M-F, 8:30am-3:30pm, unless otherwise noted on the school calendar).
