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 will serve an estimated 300 students and resides on the St. James St. John campus on Orchard Street in New Bedford.

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