Fathers' Club


Our reason is to serve as a welcoming social group, to grow in our faith, to provide compassionate support for families struggling with the loss of a parent, and assist the entire Ursuline community where needed.  We feel very strongly that when a tragedy hits home, at least the school part of the Ursuline student's life can remain as normal as possible.

Dues are $30 for an annual membership or $90 for a four-year membership.  Funds provide scholarship assistance to students following the loss of a parent.  You may pay your dues through your SmartTuition account.

  • The Ursuline Academy Fathers' Club is open to all fathers, step-fathers, uncles, grandfathers or father-figures of your choosing, of our Ursuline students.

Our organization, as do all organizations, recognizes that some members participate more than others. This is understandable for a variety of reasons (work schedule, prior commitments, etc.) and rest assured, you will not be looked upon in an unfavorable way by your fellow members. UA Mothers' and Fathers' Clubs historically have met Ursuline's needs at an event with sufficient manpower; however, it is always nice to see some new faces. Have a great school year and we look forward to your participation!
