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.

Social, I think the students could use a little help, especially with branching out and trying to connect with other students a little more. Academically, best education a high schooler can receive, and I feel very prepared for college. One complaint I do have is that I wish the school would emphasize more than just sports, especially basketball. One may forget about the other extracurricular activities the school has to offer due to the strong focus on sports. But overall, the school is a wonderful place to send your daughter.
Great school, and my daughters love it. The class size is small and the teachers really work to help empower the girls. There is definately a sisterhood there. The sports program is top notch, for such a small school, state champs, and very competitive in most sports. Many clubs to join, and travel opportunities.
