Athletic Programs St. Theresa Catholic School is concerned with the development of the WHOLE person - the religious, moral, social, and academic dimensions. We believe that participation in athletics is an important part of the student's physical development. Through participation in the St. Theresa Sports Program students may develop life-long skills and positive values. These values include leadership, healthful living habits, self-discipline, integrity, teamwork, respect for rules and regulations, and the ability to participate with dignity and grace.
