Saint Theresa Catholic School (STCS) in Sugar Land, Texas is a classical institution in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, serving prekindergarten to 8th Grade students. STCS, as a member school of the Institute for Catholic Liberal Education, was recognized by the Cardinal Newman Society as an Honor Roll School. We provide students with an education focused on the timeless wisdom of the Catholic intellectual tradition. Through our liberal arts curriculum, students develop the skills and character traits that will liberate them from shyness and selfishness as they cultivate virtue. We acquaint students with the best ideas humanity has conceived and the noblest causes that men and women have served throughout the centuries.
We look for opportunities for students to "give back" to the community and to cultivate the virtues of loving compassion and joyful service. From the athletic field to the music studio, the library to the chapel, our endeavors support our steadfast commitment to form disciples of Jesus Christ, who is the heart and center of our school. St. Theresa Catholic School has graduated, to date, only three Grade 8 classes. These young people continue their education in a number of area high schools and academies and are distinguishing themselves in a variety of ways. We hear of their service, their academic prowess, their humble but confident leadership. They, more than anyone else or anything else, attest the effectiveness of the Catholic, classical program here. In the words of St. Paul, "You are our letter of recommendation" (II Cor. 3:2).
