Welcome to Ursuline Academy!
Ursuline Academy honors the unique, God-given talents of every young woman and works to assure that each student, feeling the acceptance and support of a loving community, grows to see herself as a strong and competent contributor to her world. At Ursuline, every girl is an achiever in her own way. As a Catholic, college preparatory high school, our Academy offers an enriching program for a range of college-bound learners so they may achieve their potential in their faith, academics, arts, athletics, leadership and our motto of Serviam.
Ursuline Academy, under the sponsorship of the Ursuline Sisters of the Roman Union, is rooted in a tradition of education and innovation that dates back to 1535. We are committed to guiding our students to academic, social, and spiritual success as they grow into confident leaders rooted in our Ursuline values.
No matter who you are or where you come from, you can find your place within our sisterhood. Come and experience our community - one that many describe as their second home - and begin discovering the power within YOU!
