Enjoying the Shadow Experience at STA

The best introductions happen face-to-face, with a firsthand view of the impressive St. Teresa’s Academy campus through the eyes of an extraordinary student. Due to COVID-19 and physical distancing requirements, the Shadow Experience at St. Teresa’s Academy has shifted to small group, student-led tours held after your school day. 

Shadowing will still provide you with an inside peek into STA’s historically modern campus, including the state-of-the-art Makerspace/Engineering Lab, Math Hub, Learning Commons, art studios, athletic fields, and active learning classrooms. Your experience will show you why more than 600 girls love to call St. Teresa’s home.

You're Invited to STA!
