From Ursuline Academy

In the Catholic tradition of Ursuline education, the mission of Ursuline Academy is to prepare the young woman for college and beyond by nurturing her soul, intellect, heart, and imagination. How do we live out our mission? We empower each of our students to recognize her unique gifts, to strive for personal and academic excellence, to seek justice through actions inspired by Gospel values, and to accept the challenge of human freedom with its accompanying responsibilities. An Ursuline education lasts well beyond the four years of high school; it is a lasting sisterhood, a network of successful women making an impact on their communities across the globe. At Ursuline, we learn not just for school, but for life.

    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!

    At UA everything is stressful. If your grade isn't an A+ then you're failing. If you aren't pulling all-nighters then you aren't working hard enough. There is too much competition. I do think UA has prepared me for college, but I also think I could have gotten the same education at another school that wasn't as expensive. The counselors are AWFUL. They waited last minute to send my papers to the colleges I applied to. They do not care about you. Put your money somewhere else!
    I have a daughter that graduated and a current student. Ursuline has provided both girls a top-notch, broad education where they are encouraged to exchange ideas, collaborate, and learn from other talented girls, and from a caring, superb faculty. I've spent time observing at the school and I am amazed at how focused and engaged the students are, how well-spoken they are, and how kind there are to each other. My older daughter was awarded nearly nearly $600,000 in academic scholarships. She was accepted to her 1st choice school, which she could attend only due to the large scholarship she earned. Ursuline helped her to gain the knowledge, the skills, and the confidence needed for a successful transition into college. Take a look at Gerber Analytics OGT reports, and you will find that Ursuline is one of only 3 schools in the state to be in the very top tier academically for every year it was reported. It is a phenomenal school that I would recommend highly.
