About Us

In this day of rapid societal change, of institutions which quickly come and go, and of groups which frequently seem to lose sight of their vision and values, it is a blessing to experience St. Theresa Catholic School. Since 1959, St. Theresa has accomplished what it has always done best: providing a quality educational program replete with traditional catholic values, enriching the lives of young people in its care, and nurturing both students and their families.


The mission of St. Theresa Catholic School is to help parents fulfill their duties as primary educators of their children by welcoming our multicultural children and families to a safe and supportive Christ-centered environment. Our objective is to lead each student to know, love, and serve God, and to foster success in each student by positively empowering students to use their personal skills and abilities from their diverse backgrounds. We cultivate relationships among students, parents, faculty, and staff by embracing our diversity and valuing the teachings of Jesus Christ.

The Catholic schools of the Diocese of Little Rock seek to offer high quality academic programs which are integrated with religious truths and values. Students are prepared for life in today's Church and society and for leadership in society and the Church of tomorrow through a strong, basic, and contemporary curriculum which includes instruction and formation of beliefs, values, and traditions of Catholic Christianity. The development of the whole person of the student, spiritually, intellectually, personally, socially, and physically, is the focus of Catholic education. The teachers, as partners with the parents, play a significant role in this educational ministry as they daily witness to the meaning of mature faith and Christian living. They are selected with care and are challenged to on-going professional and spiritual growth.
