At MTCES, we emphasize the academic development of the whole student; mentally, physically, emotionally, socially, and religiously. The faculty, staff, and administration are wholly committed to developing our students into the leaders of tomorrow. We do this not only by nurturing the unique talents of each and every student, but also by developing strong relationships with parents and families. We understand that learning does not stop when the school day ends.
Although Mother Teresa is independent, it is fully recognized by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and follows the Archdiocese's Graded Course of Study for curriculum. At MTCES, we believe in keeping class sizes small so that students can receive more individualized attention.
We offer weekly music, art, technology, library, and physical education classes. In addition, we offer conversational Spanish instruction to all students. Religion is infused into the curriculum, and students actively participate and plan prayer services, bi-monthly masses, and community service projects.
