St. Teresa of Cal­cutta rises to the oc­ca­sion

The Southern Berks News - - EDUCATION -

St. Teresa of Cal­cutta School proudly cel­e­brates 10 years and an in­crease in stu­dent en­roll­ment of nearly 10 per­cent this year.

Our 2017 Na­tional Blue Rib­bon Award sets us apart from other Catholic schools. This recog­ni­tion puts us in the top 15 per­cent of schools in the na­tion for aca­demic ex­cel­lence.

Our aca­demic suc­cess to­gether with our ded­i­cated teach­ing staff and sup­port­ive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment makes for a de­sir­able school com­mu­nity. This pres­ti­gious award af­firms the hard work of our stu­dents, teach­ers, fam­i­lies and the com­mu­nity as a whole.

At St. Teresa of Cal­cutta School, we fos­ter the love of learn­ing in all ar­eas. This is most ev­i­dent in the nearly 50 per­cent in­crease of stu­dent en­roll­ment in band lessons this year. We of­fer band lessons to stu­dents in third through eighth grade. Third-grade stu­dents can choose from vi­o­lin or cello. Our fourth- to eighth-grade stu­dents have the op­tion of vi­o­lin, cello, trom­bone, trum­pet, flute

or per­cus­sion. Lessons are of­fered twice a week with a win­ter and spring recital that is sure to im­press. Our mu­sic pro­gram en­ables stu­dents to dis­cover their tal­ents which can last a life­time.

Through the as­sis­tance of the Of­fice of Catholic Ed­u­ca­tion, we of­fer the Bishop’s Tu­ition Trans­fer Grant. El­i­gi­ble fam­i­lies seek­ing a Catholic ed­u­ca­tion can trans­fer from pub­lic, pri­vate and char­ter schools to St. Teresa of Cal­cutta. The grant has as­sisted us in grow­ing our en­roll­ment and helps new fam­i­lies tran­si­tion smoothly into our Catholic school com­mu­nity.

At St. Teresa of Cal­cutta School, we part­ner with fam­i­lies to help all stu­dents achieve aca­dem­i­cally, spir­i­tu­ally, emo­tion­ally and so­cially. We are im­mersed in a com­mu­nity that con­tin­ues to de­velop and flour­ish. We are com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing faith-filled learn­ers with the skills nec­es­sary to face the chal­lenges of the 21st cen­tury.

Our school is lo­cated at 256 Swamp Pike, Sch­wenksville in Lim­er­ick Town­ship.
