Ursuline Academy

Live in harmony united in one heart and one will.

-St. Angela Merici

Founded in 1893, Ursuline Academy is an independent Catholic, college preparatory school serving upwards of 400 students per year across four divisions: Early Childhood, Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School.   Ursuline Academy is co-ed through grade five, and serves girls only in grades six through twelve. Part of a world-wide network of more than 105 schools, Ursuline Academy has been guided by the values and mission of the Ursuline Sisters, who established the school more than a century ago. Amongst the Ursuline Sisters’ core beliefs is a commitment to self-reflective adaptation in changing times – a principle rooted in the Foundress of the Ursulines, St. Angela Merici.  We prepare our students to live with faith and integrity, and to be lifelong learners and responsible global leaders. Committed to our mission of Serviam or “I will serve,” Ursuline has been a leader in education for 125 years.

Our Mission  Ursuline Academy is an independent, Catholic school community that empowers students for leadership and service in our global society.

At Ursuline, we are inspired by a deep sense of mission, a bold vision for the future and a constant drive to explore and excel. What does this mean for your child? It means they will grow in faith and friendship and they will seize extraordinary opportunities in Academics, Arts, Athletics, and Christian Service. It means they will be both the learner and the teacher, broadening their horizons and stepping outside of their comfort zone.
