Research shows that the PreK-8 model is good for students, citing higher academic achievement, more involvement in extra-curricular activities, more opportunities to develop leadership skills, fewer reports of bullying and a strong connection to the community.
Our rigorous academic program prepares students for high school, while our emphasis on virtues and service prepares them for life. Data shows that graduating St. Therese 8th-graders test in the top 1% of the nation in both reading and math. While these academic statistics are impressive, we also ensure middle schoolers remain integrated with younger students in our growing school. This provides them with leadership opportunities in a smaller setting. This results in more independent, middle school students who are both academically successful and serve as leaders and role models well into the future.
