Sta. Teresita is a relatively young town compared to the neighboring municipalities. Concerted efforts and representations made by prominent citizens headed by the Hon. Ireneo Aquino resulted into the issuance in 29 December, 1961 by the President Carlos P. Garcia of Executive Order No. 454 creating the municipality of Sta. Teresita. Said municipality of Sta. Teresita was then named after its Patron Saint, St. Therese of the Child Jesus.
It is composed of several barangays severed from the three neighboring municipalities. From the Municipality of Taal, Barangay Sambat, Sinipian, Bihis, likewise, Barangay Calayaan. Irukan and Cutang Cawayan was incorporated into the new municipality. Likewise, Barangay Calumala, Tambo, Saimsim and Burol were taken from the Municipalities of San. Nicolas. From the municipality of San Luis, Barangay Pacifico and Sampa were separated to complete what is now the Municipality of Sta. Teresita.
The Municipality of Sta. Teresita is situated along the southern lakeshore area of Taal Lake. Among the boundaries of Sta.
