    We love Ursuline Academy!! We've had 3 daughters graduate from there all with different academic and extra-curricular abilities All 3 just thrived there and were totally prepared for college. (One even entered college with a full year of credits towards her degree)! The common thread and reason why is because of the truly caring warm family atmosphere that is created there. Co-workers from the front office to the classrooms are there for your child helping her achieve her God-given potential. There is lots of spirit and many different ways to participate and become involved. They have many faith -filled and fun opportunities to live out their motto of "Serviam" . It truly is a great place to be "to discover the power with U".

    Ursuline is a great school. I have two nieces studying at Ursuline and they are very happy because of the environment and the teachers.They loves their teachers very much. Foreign Languages program has a a wonderful teacher (Spanish) who teaches her classes in a very dynamic and fun way. My nieces my brother and his wife are really happy when they listen to their kids talking in Spanish just being in freshman year. Ursuline's principal is amazing.GO BEARS!!!!!

    Ursuline is a great school for any girl looking to become a young woman in a nurturing fun and student-centered environment. The curriculum is challenging and prepares all the students in a exceptional way to move on to higher education. Students of all levels are welcome here - the learning consultant is extremely helpful and very skilled for setting goals and helping students achieve success at Ursuline. The school spirit is phenomenal and the faculty and students all feel like family. There are extracurricular activities for a wide variety of interests and there is a way for each girl to get involved. The teachers are so helpful and it is obvious they care about each student and look out for the best interests of each girl. As a recent graduate of Ursuline I would recommend it to anyone!

    Ursuline Academy is a wonderful christ centered learning environment for young women. I have had two daughters there and a third next year. The academic curriculum prepares them well for college with the support of excellent teachers. Students are allowed to express their individual ideas and creativity and to become involved in all the school activities. The dance department is unique and allows anyone who is interested to participate regardless of past experience in dance. The dance department teacher is the absolute best! They have a terrific pom and cheer squad for those with great school spirit. Sports programs are available on many levels and Ursuline is known for its athletes. They have a wonderful learning consultant who helps those with learning differences to also achieve their academic goals. Ursuline has a diverse student population so most girls will feel at home.
