The St. Teresa’s Academy community proudly partners with the following organizations to promote diversity and inclusion.
Sister School Exchange Program
This allows STA students to travel to Le Puy En Velay, France, to visit students and families of St. Joseph School, founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1850. St. Teresa’s Academy students are paired with a student from St. Joseph and reside with that family during their stay in France. Our primary goal is to build global partnerships with the many Sisters of St. Joseph schools around the world. Students travel to Paris and Lyon while visiting the Motherland of the Sisters of St. Joseph. A sister school exchange program with St. Joseph School in Le Puy En Velay, France, has been vital in continuing the legacy of the Sisters of St. Joseph and keeping their charisms alive. The congregation was founded in Le Puy in 1650. As part of the program, French students have traveled to Kansas City to live with STA families and attend school for two weeks out of the year. The program continues to offer STA students an opportunity to travel to the homeland of the Academy’s founders in odd-numbered years.
