Mission Statement

Santa Teresita School, a Catholic elementary school in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, which serves the community of Boyle Heights. The school collaborates with parents to provide a Christian and academic education for their children by providing a nurturing learning environment rooted in Gospel values.


Belief in God and the teachings of Jesus Christ are the cornerstones of Santa Teresita School and the community it serves. They believe in the importance of developing their partnership with the parents, who are the primary educators of their children. They believe that their school should promote the full development of the student’s character and academic potential. Therefore, they wish to provide a nurturing environment to meet the needs of their individual students.

They invite you to visit their school to experience a community in which faith and education meet, producing children who are enthusiastic, well-mannered and spirit filled learners.

Giving back to the community has always been a priority to Dr. Faustino Bernadett. So is literacy. That’s why Dr. Faustino Bernadett and his wife Dr. Martha Bernadett founded The Molina Foundation in 2004. Dr. Martha Bernadett is the President and CEO, and Dr. Faustino Bernadett is Vice President and Treasurer. Together they lead this national nonprofit organization that aims to cut down on disparities in access to education and health.
