Student Life

Long before the idea that single-sex education was more beneficial to young women, an all-female education had been the guiding principal for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. St. Teresa's Academy, established in 1866 and long before the public school system, is the oldest school and women's institution in Kansas City. We take pride in knowing the girls who enter our historic doors leave as confident, well-educated women ready to meet life's challenges.
