STRATEGIC PILLAR: ENVIRONMENT
As part of the MTC 2015-2020 strategic plan, we recognize the criticality of maintaining a safe and healthy environment for your children. To do this we are committed to communicate and enforce a consistent standard of discipline and conduct to promote a learning environment rooted in respect.
Mother Teresa Regional Catholic School (MTC) provides an education that nurtures students’ faith and prepares students to face the challenges of today’s rapidly changing society. Faith is integrated into all areas of education through participation at Mass, liturgical events, sacramental preparation, daily prayer and service projects.
We believe in a love of Jesus Christ and a Faith-filled environment inspired by the Holy Spirit.
We will employ teachers who are engaged in the planning and continuity of the school, recognized for their hard work and dedication, and afforded opportunities for professional development. They will create a caring environment where students are respected and nurtured, pushed toward extracurricular activity and excited about service to those in need.
We will achieve true stability in both our people and the budget through sustainable enrollment and robust development activity. Our trusted brand will be highly visible within the local community in both sight and mind. The administration of our school will be collaborative and creative, thanks to an MTC Leadership Team led by a dynamic Principal.
We will “boil over” with volunteerism creating a “parental workforce” who will collaborate with faculty and the administration to create the school environment that they want for their children. We will have a connected and active alumni network who will provide a link to the past and help fund and support this vision for the future.
To our generous community and future volunteers, please be aware that you must have all safe environment clearances prior to any volunteer work involving our students. All steps can be completed online except the “Protecting God’s Children” workshop.
Expand the devotion and tradition of the Church.
Achieve, measure and market a high academic standard.
Develop an active, organic and multichannel communications process that connects students, faculty, parents and the local community.
Maintain a balanced budget, grow an investment account, upgrade facilities and programs while aiming to mitigate pressure for tuition increases.
As clergy, staff or volunteers of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, WE are the first line of defense in the Archdiocese’s commitment to keep the children entrusted in its care safe from abuse. Archdiocesan policy requires that volunteers (unpaid) that have any possible contact with or responsibility for children, even if it is a one-time event, need background checks. (Example: chaperone for field trip, homeroom mom, teacher’s helper, school store volunteers, Secret Santa Volunteers, etc.)

Mrs. Meghan Bonkoski leads our Safe Environment Clearance process and would like you to feel free to get in touch with her at any time via email. She has put together a very comprehensive document that explains all of the steps, forms, training, etc. that you must complete before beginning any paid or volunteer service in which you would be responsible for the welfare of a child or have direct contact with children:
