Our Mission


It is the mission of our academy to offer a quality liberal and fine arts education for all youth, grades 1-12, in a stable, family and Christ oriented environment where all children know that they are beautifully and wonderfully made.

About Us


Education for Grades 1 - 12

Started in 2013, the St. Therese Classical Academy strives to give children the best education. Following the classical curriculum, STCA teaches children how to think, not what to think.

Whether you come for one class or five days, our academy has something for everyone!
