Ursuline Academy

Grades: 7 - 12
Type: Day
Gender: Girls


Ursuline Academy is an independent Catholic school for young women in grades 7 through 12. Its comprehensive curriculum ensures that students will emerge as strong writers, persuasive speakers, and analytical thinkers. Their appetite for exploration will be satisfied by a broad range of elective courses—including those in the sciences, visual and performing arts, and technology—and they will be exposed to design thinking in the I.D.E.A. Hub. Five-hundred years ago, their foundress, St. Angela Merici, urged her followers to “risk new things.” Likewise, the Ursuline experience challenges young women to defy expectations, to stretch the limits of what they believe they can do. Ursuline students feel free to discover every part of their being, to be both bold and compassionate, and to find what gives them joy. With approximately 375 students, 17 AP courses, 14 sports, and a wide range of clubs and activities, Ursuline Academy is large enough to prompt each student to find a new passion, yet small enough to know and love her for who she is. Ursuline women live with faith, courage, and joy
