Since its first issue in 1940, The Dart has been the student newspaper of St. Teresa's Academy. Created by a staff of sophomores, juniors and seniors enrolled in the Newspaper class, the publication is distributed to students, parents and alumnae every three weeks. Students create all story ideas, photography, graphics, editorial and design for each issue of The Dart. Funded through school expenditures, the newspaper does not solicit advertising. The Dart is guided by the doctrine of the Catholic Church and mission statement of St. Teresa's Academy.
