Recently the Archdiocese of Chicago invited St. Thecla School to join a process to form a regional Catholic school. After much reflection and prayer we decided to continue growing and developing our school as it has always been known; “a neighborhood parish school.” This is consistent with St. Thecla’s rich history and we remain committed to provide the best faith based education for our children.
Our students are given; Catholic faith formation, traditional academics, foreign language (Spanish, some Latin for liturgical music), up to date technology, a science lab, physical fitness, and a variety of after school activities from academic clubs to team sports that compete in the City-Suburban Conference. Our children grow in body, mind and soul that leads them to becoming successful as well as lifelong learners, and our alumni prove this to be true. The outstanding parental support and parish leadership assures that this takes place in the context of faith, family and a loving neighborhood. This year of 2015 St Thecla celebrates its 90th anniversary as a parish, and we are very proud and most enthusiastic in continuing this noble tradition for many years to come.
God bless and looking forward to meeting you.
Fr. Gene Dyer, Pastor and Mr. Dan Gargano, Principal
