Ursuline Academy Fathers' Club


The Ursuline Academy Fathers’ Club (UAFC) is a social and service organization composed of all UA fathers and father-figures. The group provides numerous and varied opportunities to enrich the UA experience for the UA students and all involved.

Our purpose is to serve as a welcoming social group, to grow in our faith, and to provide compassionate support for any UA family that may suffer the loss of a parent during a student’s time at UA. We feel strongly that when a tragedy impacts one of our own, it is our obligation to offer support and to not allow that tragedy to negatively impact the student’s ability to continue her education at UA. We also strive to assist the entire Ursuline community whenever and wherever we can make a positive impact.

Our final goal is to also provide social and service opportunities that include our students and their fathers/father-figures that provide a shared experience, help them to deepen their relationship and inspire all to be of service to our communities throughout our lives.
Membership is automatic with dues included as part of the standard tuition and fees.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Ben Burkemper, President, fathersclub@ursulinestl.org.
