International Student Program

St. Theresa School provides a supportive environment that focuses on a student's needs, which enables him/her to develop the cultural understanding and performance skills necessary to function appropriately and successfully in both academic and social situations.  Academics emphasize rigor, excellence, individualized learning, critical thinking and a keen focus on preparing students for high school and beyond.  


Students are mainstreamed into on-grade or accelerated courses in preparation for entrance into high school.


The International Student Application must be completed in English and submitted to the Admissions Office.  Applicants should also include transcripts of the previous year.

Once the completed application and fees are received in the Admissions Office, the Admissions Director and Principal will review the file and determine acceptance. If the student meets academic requirements, a letter of acceptance will be sent to the parents of the student.

After an International student is accepted to St. Theresa School, the I-20 Application must be completed as soon as possible. A non-refundable check or money order for $275 (U.S.), payable to the Archdiocese of Chicago, must accompany the I-20 Application.

I-20 Applications are only submitted after a student has been accepted to St. Theresa School.
