Academics


As a school of excellence, St. Teresa of Avila School provides a challenging academic program which enables students to excel in high school and beyond. In the last eight years, seven of our alumni have been honored as Valedictorian or Salutatorian during their high school graduation.  Several others have been named National Merit Finalists or Semi-Finalists.

With small classes led by dedicated teachers, St. Teresa elementary school enriches both the mind and the spirit.  Our classrooms are dynamic centers of learning that allow each student to reach his or her potential while incorporating a solid grounding in our Catholic faith.

Within the Diocese of Pittsburgh, our students’ test scores are among the highest as well. For the past 7 years, the math scores for our 8th grade students have been in the top 5% of the Diocese.
