Two combined facilities…one school community


Saint Teresa of Calcutta Catholic School, a Preschool through Grade 8 community, was formed by the merger of Holy Family Holy Name and St. James St. John Schools.

We are a member of the Diocese of Fall River Catholic Schools Alliance.

Saint Teresa of Calcutta currently serves 285 students and resides on the St. James St. John campus on Orchard Street in New Bedford.

A middle school, serving the combined schools, is currently undergoing major renovations and upgrades and resides in the former Kennedy Youth Center, located behind the former St. James St. John building.
