Ms. Peggy Slater



Welcome to the Ursuline Academy website! We hope you will find all the information you need – and then some! We will continue to make updates to the site, but please know that we would love to speak with you in person. Feel free to call or email anytime.

I’m inspired by our foundress, St. Angela Merici, as a women who knew her mind, worked through hardship, responded to what she knew to be her call from God, and led others on the journey to be their best selves. Supported by the Ursuline Mission, Ursuline Academy pays a great deal of attention to helping our students develop their academic and personal strengths and discover their unique place in our world.

Discover the Power Within You, reflects our invitation to all girls – with varied academic strengths and diverse interests, from all parts of St. Louis and surrounding counties – to join a unique sisterhood that will value, respect and support them through their four years here and beyond.

I have the privilege of leading a team committed to the mission set in motion by St. Angela, professionals meeting the always changing needs of each student. As one dad recently told me… “Ursuline will take good care of your daughter.”

Our community is as strong as those who join us. We hope that you see a place for your daughter at Ursuline Academy. And to our current students and parents, I thank you for the endless contributions that you make each day.

All my best,

Peggy Slater
