We believe that great schools are guided by faith and values, grounded in rigorous content,
supported by quality professional development, and animated by a clear vision. MTA strives to
be an example of the importance of strengthening and rebuilding urban Catholic schools as
models of academic rigor and transformational change for the communities, students, and
families they serve. We want to be a change agent in our community... not only for the children
we serve, but also their families.

Attending Mother Teresa Academy is an opportunity to attend a school environment that will
provide the support they need. Students who were once a behavioral challenge in school, have
transitioned into formidable students and graduated with strong academic standing from MTA.
The students at Mother Teresa Academy are our future leaders and we want to ensure they
receive the best education possible.
