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.
Admissions are based upon the following:
Merit scholarships recognize students with strong academic credentials. These are renewable scholarships that are automatically applied to any incoming student who meets all criteria.
Core composite score on 7th- or 8th-grade standardized testing is at 98th or 99th percentile
Core composite score on the 7th- or 8th-grade standardized testing is at 96th or 97th percentile
Subtest score in science on the 7th- or 8th-grade standardized testing is at 90th percentile or higher
Students meeting the test score requirement must still meet all other criteria for acceptance to Ursuline Academy. For more information, contact Ursuline’s Admissions office at 314-984-2815 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each merit-based scholarship is renewable for four years if the student maintains First Honors status.
Ursuline Academy’s tuition for the 2018-2019 academic year has been set for $14,850 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. Please see the Technology Information Sheet below 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 2018-2019 school year, the difference between the actual cost of educating an Ursuline student and tuition is $2,750. 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. Details such as tuition billing, financial assistance, laptop fee, tuition GAP donations and elective fees are posted directly to family accounts. A secure login ID enables parents to view this information at any time of the day.

Beyond Sunday Fellows
Catholic school parents may benefit from recent changes to the federal tax code which allows parents to make contributions to a child's Missouri 529 MOST account for K-12 tuition, in addition to expenses for higher education that are already permitted.
The Missouri 529 MOST account is an investment program sponsored by the Missouri State Treasurer's office. Anyone can open a MOST account, including parents, grandparents, or friends of K-12 or college-aged students. Interest earnings on contributions to MOST accounts are not subject to state or federal taxes. Furthermore, qualified distributions from the account (those for higher education expenses, and now K-12 tuition) are also not taxed. Parents can withdraw up to $10,000 annually for private K-12 tuition per student as an eligible distribution from a MOST account.
Funds contributed to a MOST account are deducted from the parent's taxable income. Reducing taxable income, in turn, will reduce the state tax bill parents pay.
