Rosati-Kain to Ursuline Academy

A Message from our Director of Enrollment:

I want to start off by saying how sorry I am to each and every one of you, that you are being put in a situation that has caused you to deal with the grief of losing your home all while managing the stress of searching for a new one. It is devastating and can feel downright traumatic. 

As a proud alumna of the class of 2001, I too am heartbroken over the announcement of Rosati-Kain closing. Rosati-Kain was so formative for me as a teenager; a safe place where I was encouraged to speak my mind, be assertive, fearless and silly all at the same time. I am devastated for all of us, but please know that if you are in search of a single gender environment that will be a safe, loving and accepting community for you, where you will be encouraged to grow your voice, talents and confidence, Ursuline Academy can be that new home for you, just like it is for me.

My time at Ursuline has reignited a fire in me that I know was initially sparked from my time at Rosati-Kain. This is a community that thrives on nurturing the whole person; we would love the opportunity to show you what a seamless transition this could be. Please feel welcome to explore this web page, and reach out to us with any questions or concerns. 

We are hosting the following opportunities to experience Ursuline Academy. 

  • Thursday, October 6th, 6PM-7:30PM, Information night for all RK families

  • Thursday, October 13th Shadow Day specifically for Rosati-Kain students.

  • Sunday, November 6th, Noon-4PM our annual Open House

We understand how difficult this time is, but we want to assure you that you will be welcome into our home anytime, and we hope that once you're here, you feel like you're home again too.

Kougars forever!
