I love the community of sisters that I have gained over the last 4 years. This is one of the best institutions in Kansas City and is one of KCMO's greatest treasures. Being the oldest school in Kansas City, the history combined with the rich culture of our city creates an experience unlike one at any other area high school. The programs are infused with excellent, superior, knowledgable teachers that care solely for the success and wellbeing of each and every one of their students. Would I change the unlimited amounts of opportunities I have at my fingertips? The unmatched sisterhood bond, further creating best friends that I will keep for a lifetime? The answer is no. I cannot say that I would change one single thing about the Academy. Go Stars.

St. Teresa’s is an amazing academic institution. I am not religious so I was originally skeptical about attending, but the extensive list of classes and their emphasis on women in STEM really sold me. The teachers really care about their students and there are counselors - both college counselors and mental health professionals - on site every day. I am also very impressed with their technology. Most prominently, they give each student a 2-in-1 Dell computer that can function both as a traditional laptop and a tablet you can write on, which has been very beneficial for taking notes in class. I have loved my last four years here and would strongly recommend STA to any other student in the KC area.
I loved STA! It was my home for four great years! Every aspect of the school was great, the only thing that could change would be diversity. Other than that the environment and people there help to foster an amazing place where young women can learn and figure out who they are.
