Dear Parents & Guardians,
Welcome to Santa Teresita School!
It is with great enthusiasm and optimism that I write this letter as the newly appointed Principal of Santa Teresita School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school community that has a strong focus in spiritual formation and academic preparation.
Since 1950, Santa Teresita School has had a rich tradition of providing a nurturing learning environment for our K-8th grade students. Founded by the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose, the religious community has worked with dedicated lay partners in order to educate the youth within the community of Boyle Heights. Our work here at Santa Teresita is focused on creating a community centered in Jesus Christ, and we teach our students to become passionate learners, to pray and live according to the word of God. We are committed to working with parents to provide our students with a quality education in a safe and positive environment.
If you are searching for a place where your children can learn, flourish and grow, then I invite you to visit us. I encourage you to join us and experience the learning community we have created here at Santa Teresita School.
Peace and Blessings,
Vernice Grajeda, M.A.
