I have attended the at the Academy of Mt. St. Ursula since the fall of 2014. I feel that the staff is connected to the students, and they try at all costs in order to make students feel comfortable and educated. There are several tutoring options available afterschool, as well many clubs and activities to partake in. The Academy of Mt. St. Ursula says, "Four years to last a lifetime," and I believe this to be true. I have met many wonderful people in my time at this school that I plan to keep in contact with and education that will carry me through life.

Here at the Academy of Mount Saint Ursula, peers stand united as sisters and create an ambitious atmosphere. There is truly no excuse as not to come across amazing opportunities that lead to more. The teachers motivate students with goals that they continue to strive for more. The student life is full of fun, activities, bonds, and community involvement. I highly recommend my school for any high school bound student, as they are sure to achieve great things and set a path to success.
I attended Ursula after my freshman year at another High school. It was a weird transition because I had left all my friends behind and had to start all over again and it was an all girls school. Something that I really wasn't used to. However, I met some awesome girls, three of which became my best friends, we still keep in touch. The teachers were outstanding, I learned a lot and they continued to encourage me even when my grades were slipping. At times, I have nostalgia about that place. I do miss it. But I will never forget Ursula.
