Every day, faculty and staff at St. Teresa’s Academy come to campus with one purpose in mind: to educate and empower young women to change the world.

STA, a Catholic, college-preparatory high school, is Kansas City’s premier private school for girls. We offer an 11:1 student:teacher ratio, with more than 80% of our faculty holding advanced degrees. Outstanding academics, STEAM certification, state-of-the-art educational spaces and tools, service and travel abroad programs, and many other unique opportunities mean your daughter will receive a top-notch education and high school experience found only at STA.

We seek and encourage a diverse student community and admit students without regard to race, color, or national or ethnic origin.

STA, Kansas City’s oldest school, has been continuously accredited since 1923.
