Ursuline Academy is a voluntary member of the Missouri State High School Activities Association, a not for profit educational association of junior and senior high schools established for the purpose of working cooperatively in adopting standards for supervising and regulating those interscholastic contests that may be delegated by the member schools to the jurisdiction of the association. 

As a member of MSHSAA, Ursuline Academy has agreed to adopt and follow those rules and practices contained in the Official Handbook of the Missouri State High School Activities Association. Ursuline Academy applies the rules and practices of MSHSAA to lacrosse and racquetball even though they are not officially sanctioned by MSHSAA.

Ursuline Academy is a member of the Metro Women’s Athletic Association (MWAA). The league is made up of seven member schools; Cor Jesu Academy, Incarnate Word Academy, Nerinx, St. Joseph’s Academy, Ursuline Academy, Visitation and Whitfield. This league is most likely the strongest league a female can compete in, in the state of Missouri.
