Ursuline Academy and Events
As we continue to carefully monitor global and local health developments related to COVID-19 (coronavirus), our Catholic foundation and Ursuline commitment to care for the whole person — we are called to be especially vigilant in preventing the spread of coronavirus.
The Ursuline community has a human responsibility to model social distancing best practices that help “flatten the curve” and slow the pandemic. The highly contagious character of the virus and the danger it can pose to vulnerable populations demand that we take all possible precautions.
We understand families have many questions during this time of uncertainty and unexpected school closure. We will be updating this webpage as circumstances and guidance change, so please check back frequently. To stay informed of all updates, please stay connected to us on facebook, instagram and twitter at @UrsulineSTL.

How long will schools be closed?
For now, the plan is to reopen schools on Thursday, April 23rd beginning with coworkers and followed by students returning on the Monday, April 27th. We will continue to assess the situation in our community and work closely in collaboration with the St. Louis County Department of Public Health and if anything should change, we will let our families and staff know.
Where can I find information on distance learning for our students?
We have asked teachers to send communications to their students via Google classroom. All students should visit the student resource site on distance learning for a full list of resources, technology support and counseling support.
Are school events canceled?
Yes. All events, activities, practices, etc. have been canceled during the emergency closure. We know these cancellations are a big disappointment to our students and families. Planning is difficult right now but we will be doing everything we can to reschedule or create similar experiences as soon as the situation is resolved.
Are athletics and sports suspended?
Yes. All athletic events and practices have been canceled during the emergency closure.
I am hosting an event or program at a Ursuline Academy. Should I cancel it?
Yes. All facility rentals have been canceled during the emergency closure.
Will the upcoming ACT tests still be held?
No. ACT has rescheduled its April 4 national test date to June 13 across the U.S. in response to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). All students registered for the April 4 test date will receive an email from ACT in the next few days informing them of the postponement and instructions for free rescheduling to June 13 or a future national test date. For more information, visit the ACT website.
The ACT previously scheduled for March 24 at Ursuline will not be rescheduled. The counseling department encourages juniors to sign up for the June 13 ACT.
How will AP courses and testing be affected?
All information on updates for AP coursework and testing can be found here.
Can students still receive college credit?
