The sisterhood at Ursuline is incredible, the bonds you form with your sisters will last a lifetime. The education is outstanding as well, and many alumni say their first year of college was a breeze because of how well Ursuline prepared them. Serviceis incorporated into students' daily lives and will stay with them long after graduation. I am proud to attend such a wonderful school!

Ursuline Academy is an amazing school. I truly believe that an all-girls education is worth the tuition of UA. The academics are well balanced and prepare you for college life. The counselors at UA always make sure you are where you need to be and that you have the materials you need to be successful. The teachers are alright. Once in a while you may get a teacher who isn't the greatest, but overall the teachers are amazing and by the time you graduate they become like friends. The sisterhood at UA is the greatest thing about the school. You really feel like all the girls here are your sisters. There is some diversity at the school, but I feel like there should be more.
Overall Ursuline Academy is a great school! The teachers are very willing to help you achieve your goals. I really like the small classes because I am able to ask a LOT of questions when ever I need help or clarification.
