The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) plans to spend approximately $28 million over the next 3 years to turn the former St. Teresa's School complex into a Court Officers Training Academy, to be operated by the state's Office of Court Administration. The three structures, which include a sizeable auditorium as well as a former school and convent, sit along Classon Avenue between St. John's and Sterling, one block south of St. Teresa's parish church, with which they were once affiliated. Having housed several different catholic schools since their construction almost a century ago, the buildings will see 53,000 square feet renovated to inlcude "classrooms, multi-purpose/general assembly area, exercise/fitness/training spaces, locker rooms, shower facilities, offices, administrative/office spaces, lodging and dining accommodations" for trainees.
