Ursuline Academy Reviews

Ursuline Academy is easily one of the most difficult but rewarding experiences of my life thus far. UA has pushed me to be the best person that I can be both academically and personally. I've made friends who have changed my life and met teachers who inspired a love of learning. Because of Ursuline, I have gotten into every college that I have heard back from so far and am confident that I will get into the other colleges that I applied to. However, it is not perfect. Like any school, there are some things that could be improved. The freshman and sophomore counselors, though clearly having good intentions and are knowledgeable about Ursuline, are not always the best people to turn to and are not always approachable. That said, the senior/junior college counselors are PHENOMENAL. They are very helpful, approachable, and all around wonderful people. Because of Ursuline, I am ready to take on the world!

Good environment, strong sisterhood. A place I came into without knowing everyone and am going out with 150 new sisters. The challenging environment effectively prepares us for college and has strengthened my mental capacity immensely. The bonds I have formed with my friends are life-long bonds and I have no doubt that I will still see these girls in 30 years. The teachers truly care about students and make efforts to get to know each one personally. College counselors give us countless opportunities to improve our applications and find scholarships to help pay for school.
I love Ursuline. It has become a second home; however, I will be the first to admit that it is not without its flaws. Despite its great D1 sports teams, everyone is too busy with school to attend many games. Though if you are looking for a high school where you are surrounded by people who are dedicated to school and personal and academic success like I was, then this is the place for you. I love Ursuline and as a rising Senior can't wait for all of the special traditions I get to share with my class next year. The social environment here gets better and better every year, but I'll admit it starts off a little shaky though I think this is partly because it is 9-12th only. Go lions!
