Ursuline has provided an environment for my daughter to engage in learning with teachers who are enthusiastic and caring. She feels known by her teachers and appreciated! Her coaches have been outstanding, as well! The school is a true community in which students across grade levels connect and support one another. I am surprised in some ways how engaged she is and how motivated she is by the school’s mission. It has been a wonderful experience so far!

UA has been a perfect fit for our 3 daughters (2 liked sports, 1 drama and music...something for everyone at UA)

Highlights for our daughters have been lasting friendships, traveling abroad on school trips, and like-minded families that embrace letting your daughter grow up at a desirable pace socially.

The teachers at Ursuline feel lucky to teach your daughters where the norm is motivated and capable students filled with school spirit.

When it comes time to apply to college, both parents and daughters are well supported through this process by a very experienced director of guidance and staff.

Ursuline's school day schedule has ample study blocks and community time built into each day and this helps the busy academic life of a high schooler.

Moving to online learning was seamless at Ursuline with virus- they already have technology and connected IPAD system that allowed a smooth transition and kept her connected even to her extracurriculars.
I have had a wonderful experience at Ursuline! There is a strong sense of community and solidarity among students, faculty, and administration. Although the schoolwork is proven to be a challenge, there are resources to help students prepare for college and succeed in all they wish to accomplish.
