Boises first high school
was a Catholic school. Saint Teresas Academy was established
in 1890 by the Sisters of the Holy Cross as a high school and
boarding school for young women. Later, St. Josephs School
was built to offer Catholic education to the young men of the
area, with an elementary school occupying the lower level and
a high school on the upper floor. In 1933, the two high schools
joined to form the co-ed St. Teresas Academy, which educated
both Catholic and non-Catholic students until it closed in 1964.
Bishop Kelly High School, founded in 1971, became the next and
present Catholic high school in the Diocese of Boise.
