School Information & Schedule

Mother Teresa Academy was founded in 2006 by Joyce Maddalone. We are in our seventeenth year serving the Clifton Park and surrounding communities. We strongly believe in teaching children values that they will be able to use their whole life.

Each month students are introduced to a new Mother Teresa Value. Values are practiced during all daily activities and encouraged to be fostered at home.

  • November – Service (Citizenship) (sharing, giving, time, fixing)

  • January – Acceptance
  • February – Love
  • March – Caring (fairness/kindness)
  • April – Forgiveness
  • May – ResponsibilityRespect (self, others (life), authority, God)
  • June – Faith (prayer, meditation)
