We Make a Difference

“The cornerstone to the community” is what Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (BTC) has been described to be. For over 100 years our school’s footprint has carried forth the tradition of providing a quality Catholic education for many children in the Ferguson and greater North County communities. With the new school year, we welcomed great change. A new Principal, new teachers, school students and their families. Most importantly, we continue to build a faith-based school community, where all are welcomed. We continue to Make A Difference!

“What I like about BTC is it’s like my 2nd family to me. We pray together like a family."
-BTC 3rd grade student

“BTC is special to me because I get to go to church because I stopped going to church after my great-grandma died, so it reminds me of her. And BTC brings joy.”
-BTC 6th grade student

Because of our annual We Make A Difference Campaign, BTC’s academic and spiritual offerings continue to
provide families with a new opportunity for their children – an opportunity that involves a more personalized,
challenging, and supportive, high-quality Catholic education, proven to set students on a path toward their
educational success. The past few years we have endured many barriers with the global pandemic. As we continue the school year, we recognize this year continues to bring increased challenges as many of our families are directly impacted financially by COVID-19. We need your help!

For the 2021-2022 school year at BTC, 84 families/127 students will receive over $312,000 in tuition assistance. That is over 80% of our student body. In addition to our continuous need for financial assistance, our school is constantly aiming to evolve in order to adapt to changing educational practices as well as provide the ongoing building maintenance to our beloved school.

This year’s We Make A Difference Campaign’s goal is to raise $100,000. With these types of initiatives and need in mind, we prayerfully ask you to consider a gift towards our Annual Campaign. Your donation would aid the needs of our families and the evolution of our classrooms as we continue to create new possibilities for our faculty and students, creating a bright future for academic success.
