St. Therese Catholic School prepares our students for the academic demands and spiritual challenges of a 21st Century community.   We en  sure academic achievement through a traditional pre-collegiate curriculum integrated within the teachings of the Catholic Church and under the direction of the Bishop. 


In addition to a full academic program of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, we provide an active enrichment program consisting of Spanish, Vocal Music, Physical Education, and Religious Studies daily.   Student learning is supported by a wide range of field trip experiences, grade level projects, and integrated instructional technology. 

St. Therese provides a comprehensive Middle School program taught by fully certified/highly qualified secondary teachers focused on pre-collegiate preparation.  St. Therese also provides a High School experience on campus for students in grades 9 thru 12.  The program includes online course work through Catholic Schools of Excellence, a nationally accredited  online instructional program.  In additon, juniors and seniors have the opportunity to take advantage of the "Concurrent Enrollment Program" offered at near by Pueblo Community College or at Colorado State University - Pueblo. 

St. Therese Catholic School has not adopted "The Common Core" and does not report any student information to any agencies outside of the Diocese of Pueblo.  The school is led by an experienced principal with over thirty years in education and a Board of Directors appointed by the Bishop.

Mr. Brainard Announces His Retirement
Mr. Brainard announced to parents and students that this is his last year serving as the principal of St. Therese Catholic School.  He is retiring in order to spend more time with his wife Carol and his children’s families here in Pueblo and in Salt Lake City, Utah and possibly pursue further opportunities in Catholic Education.  
Mr. Brainard said "My tenure at St. Therese has been both rewarding and fulfilling.   I will always be grateful for the opportunities I have had leading the students and staff of STCS.  The school experienced significant growth over the past seven years and I am confident that St. Therese Catholic School will continue to grow and thrive.  I will always cherish the friendships and memories made at St. Therese Catholic School as I move forward to whatever the Lord may have planned for me in the future.
Mr. Brainard also said "I am making the decision to retire at this point of the school year to give St. Therese the best opportunity to find a qualified and committed principal to lead St. Therese to the next level."  He went on to say "By announcing this early, my hope is that we will have a new principal early enough to help with transition and orientation to the systems, policies, and programs at St. Therese.  Additionally, I will ensure that as much of the planning for the 2015 – 2016 year is completed before I leave."
HS Student 3
Science Olympiad 2014
St. Therese is once again sponsoring the Science Olympiad for its students Friday, March 20th.  At St. Therese, students of science are asked do more that memorize definitions and 'parrot' facts. To make sense of science, students must be given opportunities to make connections between scientific phenomena and their own world.  This year St. Therese students will be asked to investigate the scientific concepts used in the development of toys.
Each student will have a PowerPoint presentation or display consisting of:
  • The name of the toy,
  • The purpose of the inquiry,
  • The scientific concept or principal utilized by the toy,
  • An explanation of how the toy works, and
  • What research was done to investigate how the toy works.


Each student will give a 3 - 5 minute oral presentation to present their findings to the rest of the student body. Presentations will begin at 11:00 and will continue after lunch.
