About St. Therese
A 21st century Catholic School of Excellence!
Thanks to the generosity of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and KIPP founder Scott Hamilton and Seton Education Partners, Saint Therese has become St. Therese Catholic Academy, the first blended technology learning Catholic school in the Northwest!
St. Therese is one of only two Catholic schools in the country chosen by the nationally renowned Seton Education Partners to adopt this proven, cutting-edge model of learning. We offer families -- regardless of income -- an individualized preschool through eighth-grade education that strengthens each child's creativity, knowledge and character. This unique instruction prepares them to excel academically, socially, physically, and spiritually through all levels of education and beyond.
St. Therese Catholic School has been at the heart of the Madrona neighborhood of Seattle since 1927. It attracts students from the nearby community, as well as the surrounding greater Seattle area. We are recognized for our outstanding academic programs, cultural diversity and safe, friendly, family-oriented atmosphere. St. Therese School caters to families who are seeking an outstanding core academic program, lab-based science, dynamic middle school elective courses, terrific environmental camp experiences, and inspiring teachers.
