St. Teresa's debuts new high school in Albany
The doors of Southwest Georgia’s newest high school opened Monday.
St. Teresa’s Catholic School debuted its first ever high school and the area’s only Catholic high school when the rest of the student body returned to class Monday.
The high school has 12 freshmen and sophomores and plans to expand to juniors and seniors the next two years.
Director of High School Terry McKay called the day “monumental,” especially after nearly a year of planning for the new division.
“I think there were a lot of smiles,” McKay said. “A lot of smiles, and everybody getting to see each other and knowing that they’re embarking on a new era.”
St. Teresa’s is allowing students to take classes through Georgia Virtual School during the school day for any classes they don’t currently offer.
McKay said they also joined the Georgia Independent Christian Athletic Association (GICAA) and will field archery, soccer and basketball teams this year for both boys and girls.
