Journalism

The students of St. Teresa's Academy find their voice in four different publications:

The Dart

The Dart newspaper has been publishing since 1940.  The staff has been nominated for the Pacemaker Award, the most prestigious student-press award, and annually wins Best of the Year awards from the National Scholastic Press Association for design, writing, and photography.

Since its first issue in 1940, The Dart has been the student newspaper of St. Teresa's Academy. Created by a staff of sophomores, juniors and seniors enrolled in the Newspaper class, the publication is distributed to students, parents and alumnae every three weeks. Students create all story ideas, photography, graphics, editorial and design for each issue of The Dart. Funded through school expenditures, the newspaper does not solicit advertising.

The Teresian

The Teresian yearbook staff publishes a full-color yearbook detailing all aspects of live at STA, including athletics, academics, and the social lives of STA students. The staff has been nominated for NSPA Best of the Year awards, and the 2008 edition of the book "Unscripted" won the Gold Crown award from the Columbia Scholastic Journalism Association.

The Dart News Online

DartNewsOnline began in 2009. During its first year,  DartNewsOnline was  nominated and won a Pacemaker award from NSPA. The staff of the Dart print newspaper provides content for the website, which includes multimedia graphics, photo galleries, video, a twitter feed, blogs, a facebook fan page, and news stories.

Questions or comments about The Dart, DNO, or Teresian can be directed to publications advisor Brad Lewis: blewis@stteresasacademy.org.

The Windmoor

The Windmoor literary magazine prints one installment each year to showcase the art and literature of the student body.  Published yearly through a donation by Andrews McMeel Universal, the Windmoor literary magazine features student poetry, photography, prose, artwork and short stories. It is the hope of this publication to nurture, develop, cultivate and express artistic and creative talent. An extracurricular activity staffed by faculty and students, the magazine also created an online presence in 2009: Windmoor Wired.
