The Mission of the Catholic School System of the Diocese of Lincoln is to form students spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically, in partnership with parents, and in harmony with the specific gifts given by God to each student. In order to fulfill this mission, these schools are committed to integrating the best programs and means of education with Catholic faith and moral values.
St. Teresa Catholic School is an educational ministry of St. Teresa Parish in Lincoln, Nebraska. We are a compassionate, caring community for students in preschool through eighth grade that celebrates the gifts, academic growth, and especially spiritual growth of each child. Our school offers academic excellence and strong Catholic values to our parish’s students, to students attending other Lincoln parishes, especially those who do not have an elementary school, to non-Catholic students, and to students of different faiths. All are welcome!
St. Teresa School Mission StatementWe are a faith-filled Catholic community called by God to teach, nurture and guide our children to achieve their God-given potential on life's journey to heaven. Our core values are Faith, Community, and Action.
As part of a Eucharistic community, Kingergarten through Grade 8 students attend Mass daily.
Students develop and deepen their own faith through individual and communal prayer each day.
Students are challenged to improve the world by learning, living and sharing Gospel values.
Our school began in 1930, four years after our parish was established. Two Dominican Sisters from Saint Catherine, Kentucky, began teaching 23 students in two rooms furnished only with the bare necessities. By 1940, enrollment reached 110, and in 1948, St. Teresa School became an accredited junior high. Today St. Teresa School serves more than 300 Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade students guided by the School Sisters of Christ the King.
