Students at St. Teresa’s Academy have been challenged to maintain a standard of excellence in academics for more than 150 years. The college-preparatory curriculum is innovative and rigorous, positioning students to succeed in their chosen paths, with 98% going directly on to a four-year college or university. The curriculum is rooted in technology, and features customized devices and Internet access (with restrictions) anywhere on campus.
Over 125 courses are available. Students may earn college credit through Advanced Placement (AP) courses, as well as through dual enrollment courses with Rockhurst University, Saint Louis University, and the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Our flexible schedule prepares students for college by emphasizing personal responsibility and self-discipline. Students are encouraged to meet with faculty for additional assistance during their open-room periods.
Each winter, students complete course plans covering the remainder of their time at STA. These online plans are used by students, parents, advisors, and school and college counselors to create academic goals.
