Welcome to St. Teresa's Academy. Our tradition and commitment to personal, academic, and spiritual growth has been our legacy for nearly 150 years. Founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet (CSJ), the Academy's identity emphasizes an all-female student body and college prep curriculum, all enveloped in the traditions of Catholic faith. Here, students are nurtured and guided to become confident, skilled, and caring young women. The challenging curriculum, diverse student body, and an emphasis on personal responsibility help students find success in today’s ever-changing global environment. These leaders of tomorrow will leave our doors with a solid educational and spiritual foundation, and know they have been a part of a very special tradition.

Located on a beautiful, college-like campus in the heart of the Brookside and south Plaza neighborhoods, St. Teresa's promotes excellence in education. Students recognize the importance of a global education where students learn about the world and think beyond their own borders to succeed in an increasingly international and competitive world. The Academy employs the latest technology to improve and enhance quality and depth of education. Every student receives a customized Surface Pro 4 tablet for use throughout her tenure at STA. A wireless campus and distance learning classrooms are just a few examples of the school’s commitment to 21st-century educational instruction.
