Meet Our Students


It’s helped me branch out and try new things and meet new people which made me more outgoing. It means a lot to me since I found some of my closest friends by reaching out of my comfort zone

Ursuline has allowed me to explore different opportunities and make my own journey. It has allowed me to discover leadership and teamwork skills that will help me every day.

Paige Lawhorn '21

I believed it was home from the second I stepped into the front doors of Ursuline. Everyone was super welcoming and outgoing. Also, the teachers seemed to be very optimistic about their students and if they needed any help they were right there beside them helping them every step of the way.

Faith Johnson '22

One of the core values that means the most to me is development of the whole person. I think this core value is important and sets Ursuline apart from the rest because unlike many high schools, Ursuline is preparing students for life and developing the students as a person. Many high schools focus strictly on grades while Ursuline is able to focus on grades and the student. This is how my family and I decided Ursuline was the best fit for me.

Ella Castro '21

Ursuline has helped me to discover the power within myself because I know I can be myself and therefore gain more confidence. I have made more friends than I could have ever imagined.

Maura Quigley '22

I’ve discovered my passions by being pushed to work hard in school, playing a sport, and participating in co-curriculars. It means a lot to me because discovering myself is important for my entire life.

Quinn Cook '21

Discover the Power within yourself means that every day you may learn something new about yourself. In high school, there are many new opportunities to discover more about yourself that you may not have known before. Ursuline has helped me with this by allowing me opportunities to try out new sports and classes I never thought I would enjoy or be good at.
