2021-2026 Strategic Plan

We are pleased to share St. Teresa Academy’s most recent five-year Strategic Plan with you. The plan, which was developed in collaboration with the STA community -- faculty and staff, alumnae, community advocates, STA Board of Directors members, and parents and students -- was approved by the Board in the summer of 2021.

The plan prioritizes five pillars:

  • High Quality Academic Excellence and Vibrant Student Life
    St. Teresa’s Academy's identity with the CSJ serves as the foundation for education as a Catholic institution. The Academy fosters, nurtures, and guides students to successful futures that may take them across the country and world. These leaders of tomorrow will leave the Academy with an exceptional educational and spiritual foundation and will have been a part of a very special tradition.
     
  • Fidelity to Our Catholic Identity
    We are a Catholic school sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph. By rooting a student’s education and experience in the Catholic faith and the values of our founding Sisters of St. Joseph, we teach students to use their personal prayer lives to recognize the needs of the world around them.
     
  • Partnerships with Alumnae and Community
    St. Teresa’s Academy embraces and values engagement with communities—alumnae, parents, and local organizations—as a powerful means for advancing its mission. In the words of our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph, “together, we are more.” Our mission is strengthened every day through our connections to each other and to God.
     
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
    Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is a tenet of Catholic Social Teaching. DEI initiatives enhance our commitment to and advance the mission of the CSJ.
     
  • Sustainability of a Vibrant Academy
    St. Teresa’s Academy adheres to sound financial and management policies to ensure the sustainability of our resources, including our people, our campus, and our finances. We continually evaluate and implement best practices to ensure sustainability of STA.
