Happy Anniversary to STS!
Celebrating 75 years!
We first opened our doors on September 5, 1945 with 31 students ranging from kindergarten through 6th grade. After a few years, 7th and 8th grades were added. By 1952 we had outgrown our original home and the current building used present day was constructed to house our growing student body. St. Teresa’s is the oldest private school in the Albany area.
Today we have grades prek3 through 12th grade. We promote academic excellence in an atmosphere that nourishes the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical, and moral development of each child. Our dedicated staff collaborates to prepare students to be leaders in a global society by fostering a sense of responsibility and integrity. St. Teresa’s Catholic School encourages each child to develop his/her gifts to serve others.
We will be following up our anniversary with a school wide celebration on Thursday, October 15th, which is the feast day of our patron saint, St. Teresa of Avila.
October 15th is the feast day of St. Teresa of Avila, our school patron saint. We honored our 75th school anniversary on the feast day as well. Students and staff gathered on the soccer field to pray the rosary together and suspend a balloon rosary into the air. Superintendent Michelle Kroll was in attendance for our celebration.
