St. Teresa School Mission Statement

St. Teresa Catholic School, in partnership with parents, provides an education faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church. We nurture students’ natural sense of wonder and guide them to know and love truth, beauty, and goodness, and to live as virtuous disciples of Jesus Christ with their hearts set on true and lasting joy.

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.

Students develop and deepen their own faith through individual and communal prayer each day. 
Religious Education
Students are challenged to improve the world by learning, living and sharing Gospel values.

Our History

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.
