The faculty of Saint Therese School prepares children socially, academically, and spiritually to grow as responsible individuals who will advance our world. The teachers, many of whom have taught here for 10 years or more, are dedicated and creative professionals who are certified by the state and the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Their personal devotion to the mission of teaching, to their Catholic faith and their continual contact with parents/guardians are reasons why our program is so successful.
