Tuition & Fees

Ursuline Academy’s tuition for the 2016-2017 academic year has been set for $13,650 with a standard fee of $375 and a technology fee of $200.  Ursuline Academy students have a choice to bring their own laptop or use an Ursuline-provided laptop. This decision is a two year commitment.  Please see the attached Technology Information Sheet for details.  The laptop fee of $285 will be assessed to students choosing an Ursuline Academy-provided laptop.

Tuition covers a portion of the costs of teaching services to facilitate the physical, spiritual, and mental growth and development of students in a safe and wholesome environment. For the 2016-2017 school year, the difference between the actual cost of educating an Ursuline student and tuition is $2,150. This difference is made up with charitable gifts from parents, alumnae and fundraising events.

Ursuline Academy partners with Smart Tuition for the processing and collection of our families’ tuition and fees. This partnership with Smart Tuition allows for a confidential system where families can see for themselves a complete report of their tuition account. Details such as tuition billing, financial assistance, laptop fee, tuition GAP donations and elective fees are posted directly to family accounts. A secure Log-in ID enables parents to view this information at any time of the day.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition assistance at Ursuline Academy is based on financial need. This assistance provides part, rather than all of the cost of tuition. Ursuline Alumnae provide much of the funding for the program through the generosity of Alumnae Annual Giving. Ursuline Academy utilizes an outside source (SmartAid) for processing financial aid applications.   

You can complete an online application for the 2017-2018 school year by applying directly on the SmartAid site:  If you have applied for the 2016-2017 school year most of your responses have been pre-populated into a 2017-2018 application.

The Ursuline Academy's school code is 13325.  There is a $35 processing fee for each application.  The financial aid application, the $35 processing fee, and a copy of your tax return must be submitted by March 1, 2017.


The K-12 Family Education Loan sponsored by Sallie Mae is available to Ursuline families. Loans are available to pay tuition costs plus a percentage of other school costs.  Click here to read more about the Sallie Mae loans.
