St. Therese Catholic Academy is the second site of the Phaedrus Initiative, a project funded by Seton Education Partners to revitalize inner-city Catholic schools by leveraging blended learning. Leading up to the 2012-13 school year, St. Therese Catholic Academy had undergone a dozen years of decline. In order to reverse this trend, St. Therese Catholic Academy reopened in the 2012-13 school year not only with the first blended-learning curriculum in a Catholic school based in the northwest, but also with a new name. St. Therese Catholic Academy serves a diverse student body population which consists of children from across 25 zip codes and at least 75 percent minority students; as the school improves and demand from wealthier students increases, St. Therese Catholic Academy has promised to reserve 50 percent of its slots for low-income students.
