Ursuline Academy is a place designed especially for girls and the way they learn. Studies show that girls find it easier to excel and become more confident learners in an all-girl setting. It's a more comfortable environment that encourages girls to speak up in class, to express their opinions, and to take initiative in everything from academics to the arts to athletics. At Ursuline, every girl is an achiever in her own way. Girls start clubs, plan service projects, play on sports teams, and hold all of the leadership positions. The all-girl environment creates a special, sister-like bond among students and a strong sense of community. From the first day a girl walks through the door, she finds a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Everyone – students and teachers – is eager to help you learn, grow, and succeed in taking on any challenge. Find out what the research shows about the benefits of an all-girl education.
The following criteria are considered for admission to Ursuline Academy:
The Hallmark Award was created to honor incoming freshmen students for their grade school academic achievement and their performance on the high school placement test. Students who score in the top 3% of their incoming class on the High School Placement Test and their core battery scores on their standardized tests in grades 6, 7 and 8 will receive a one-time $500 scholarship.
The Principal's Scholarship is an academic scholarship for students who receive a core 98th or 99th percentile on their ITBS in eighth grade or on the High School Placement Test which is administered following acceptance to UA. This scholarship is for $2000 and is renewable each year as long as a student continues to achieve First Honors status during her time at Ursuline.
Ursuline Academy’s tuition for the 2017-2018 academic year has been set for $14,200 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 2017-2018 school year, the difference between the actual cost of educating an Ursuline student and tuition is $2,500. This difference is made up with charitable gifts to the Ursuline Fund by parents, grandparents and friends as well as our annual 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.
