St. Theresa of the Child Jesus School Board of Specified Jurisdiction


The purpose of this board is to promote and advance the mission of this Catholic school for the
education and instruction of students in assisting them to “reach the fullness of the Christian life.” (See
canon 794 §1). In keeping with the principles of the Roman Catholic Church, this board ensures that this
school fulfills its mission of forming the human person for our final end and for the common good. (See
canon 795). The board also ensures that the finances of the school remain healthy and ensures a course
of education as prescribed by the Archdiocese of Boston and the applicable policies, rules, and
regulations of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

With assistance from the Healey Foundation, a Board of Specified Jurisdiction was formed in 2020. A full copy of the bylaws and operating principals is available upon request.
