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.

Doctor Creagar
St. Therese Remembers Dr. Creager
The St. Therese Catholic School community mourns the loss of one of its beloved volunteers Donald L. Creager, known to all of us as simply “Doc”.  Doctor Creagar, who passed away peacefully at home on July 4, 2015 was an ardent supporter of St. Therese Catholic School students and staff.  He donated countless hours and untold resources to managing the computer systems at St. Therese Catholic School and as a result established and maintained a vibrant and responsive instructional technology system. 
Doctor Creager was a great friend of St. Therese and supporter Catholic education.  Doc was always “just a phone call away” and took great pride in making sure students and teachers rarely if ever experienced a problem with their classroom computer systems.  Doctor Creager enjoyed a quiet sense of pride whenever students succeeded in online competitions such as the American Math Challenge or instructional programs such as Renaissance Learning.  We all knew that none of this would have been possible without Doc, but he would never let us give him the recognition he deserved and he would dismiss his role in our school’s success.
Doctor Creager was instrumental in the planning and implementation of the High School online program at St. Therese.  Without his expertise and dedication it is quite possible that our High School program would not have emerged from of the pilot phase to produce our first graduating class in May of 2015.
Doctor Creager was devoted to his family and Catholic faith and it showed.   We will miss his golf tales, fishing stories, and emails.  Doc’s example of commitment and selflessness is one that many of the staff and students who knew him would do well to imitate.   While we may begin a new school year without Doc, his presence will be felt, his impact on our students undiminished, and his legacy at St. Therese Catholic School unending. 
Thank You Doctor Creager.
