International Students

The Ursuline students of today are the global leaders of tomorrow. Build on standards of academic excellence and respect for the uniqueness of each person, Ursuline Academy educates young women for living and leading in a global society. If you are an international student looking to experience academic excellence and personal development studying abroad in the United States, you’ll find it all at Ursuline. Ursuline Academy St. Louis is certified to issue I-20 Certificates for international students. 


Ursuline Academy is looking for academically and personally driven students to join our sisterhood. International students must demonstrate a desire to engage ethically, critically and empathetically with the world around them. Students must also be able to demonstrate a strong academic ability and strong English-speaking skills.


International students register for a yearly fee of $10,000 plus the actual cost of educating a student.

Cultural Experience:

Experience the American high school culture customized to your interests. International students are encouraged to discover the power within themselves through a personalized approach to academics, co-curricular and athletics programs.
