Ursuline enables students to discover the power within them by meeting each student where she is, helping her understand her individual learning style and growing from there. Ursuline students are guided by the same counselor and advisor over their four years, allowing unique goals to be formed with a trusted confidant. Each student will graduate with a portfolio of her time and work at Ursuline Academy, giving her another edge in pursuing a college education.
