Ursuline Academy High School Reviews

The school's administration is very caring and devoted and they try their best to make high school a fun, educational, pleasant, and sufficiently preparatory experience. In agreement with other reviewers, the extracurricular options could use quite a bit of work and the pressure to be religious can be suffocating at times, but that's to be expected with a Catholic school. They are accommodating to students with disabilities (to a certain, degree, of course, and provided that the accommodations don't disrupt other students) and do an amazing job of genuinely caring about students' medical/special needs and, even better, their feelings and dignity. I do think the pressure/stress/workload can be significantly improved, but that's a problem I have with the American school system as a whole, not just this facility. The administration does well with making every student feel included, but unfortunately the same cannot be said for the students themselves. However, this, too, is to be expected with an all-girl high school.

In sum, the teachers are (mostly) phenomenal, the administration is strict but caring, the religious aspect is admirable in theory but can be stifling/irritating in practice, the faculty and staff are friendly and accommodating, and the teachers and administration work hard to make Ursuline a second home for us, including concerted efforts to eradicate bullying/catty behavior and encourage a feeling of sisterhood and family amongst the students. The all-girl aspect has made the experience more comfortable and encouraged a more realistic view of female beauty standards, and there is an extremely tight-knit, intimate atmosphere that is pleasant and supportive.

I have been going to Ursuline since first grade and now I am about to graduate. I am so proud of Ursuline and how many changes it has gone through. UA has grown positively with its new facilities, including the Wellness Center, science labs, and computer labs. The teachers are so open to help you and are willing to point you in the right direction to prepare you for college. The Counseling Department has also grown with adding a college counselor for anyone who needs help with college related topics.
I absolutely loved my high school experience at Ursuline Academy! I would highly recommend it to any young girls who want to receive an amazing education, meet the friends of a lifetime, and have the ability to become active in a small, close, and nurturing atmosphere.
