Discover St. Theresa School

Parent Testimonial

  • We've been part of St. Theresa's community for the past 13 years. Throughout these years we only happened to find the perfect environment for our daughters to grow. Faith, compassion, academic success and friendships that last forever, all in one place. We are convinced that a Catholic education is the best investment for our children and STS is the best school in the desert to do it.

Our School

For 65 years, St. Theresa School has been committed to carrying out the ministry of Jesus Christ and educating the youth of the Coachella Valley.

In partnership with families,we provide a student centered program, academic excellence and faith format. We prepare our students to value the uniqueness and diversity of every individual, to be of service to others and to become responsible citizens.


  • We have been a part of the St. Theresa family for over 8 years. Our girls attended the St. Theresa Preschool and now attend the elementary and Junior High. We are proud to be a part of the St. Theresa family. The academic standards, expectations and philosophies are only some of the reasons why we love this school. We believe the Catholic mission and philosophies are a great foundation for our children’s education. We are very blessed to have the opportunity to send our children to a school that offers academics, faith and community.

History and
Mid-Century Architecture

Established in 1948, Saint Theresa School has been a superb educational institution for the last 68 years. The Immaculate Heart Sisters from Los Angeles, under the leadership of Sister Bernadette, opened the school on September 2, 1948 with a Mass in honor of the Holy Spirit.


Through the efforts of people in the school community, parish community, and our friends in the Coachella Valley, St Theresa School and St. Theresa Church have become not only an example of excellence in education and faith but an icon of Mid-Century architecture.
