Ursuline Academy is an excellent choice for girls! The curriculum is well rounded, rigorous, and fun! Girls are challenge to be critical thinkers and are taught the value of service and “agape” love of God, self, and others. The school is inclusive. Teacher’s and leadership are engaging and care about the students. Sports and extra curricular activities are at top levels-super fun, super cool! And let me tell you, lunch time, does not t disappoint. This was my daughter’s first year at UA . She transitioned from a public school so she had some adjusting to do, so the teachers and staff jumped right in to support her through and now she’s entering UA high school! In all, I’m glad we made the right choice in school for my girl! I’m glad that she is an Ursuline girl!!

I like Ursuline because it is a small school that has a rich tradition. If you live in New Orleans and people ask you where you went to high school, which they always do in this city, there's a sense of knowing what your character is when you tell them: "I went to Ursuline". They know what kind of person you are: one who cares about serving others, one who cares about having courtesy, loyalty, and courage wherever you go. This school not only builds up your character as a student but as a person. If I had to change one thing about Ursuline, is that I wish the students were heard more. Recently, this has been improving but I'd like to see the teachers listening and understanding to the needs of the students with the busy lifestyles they upkeep.
It was an experience I do not think could be replicated anywhere else. I was given the opportunity to cultivate close personal relationships with my peers and professors, and I felt personally cared for by both the professors and the administration. At the same time, the academics were rigorous, and I came to college fully prepared on topics like how to write a well-organized paper, how to deal with a lecture setting, etc. The AP classes were excellent preparation for the college class, and the overall experience molded me in so many ways. Ursuline is not a Jesuit school, but it is my belief that it excellently models the Jesuit mantra of "cura personalis": that is, care of the whole person.
