MIDDLE SCHOOL

Philosophy | Goals | Traditions | Values

The School for Values… Ursuline Academy’s all-girl Middle School fosters high academic achievement and personal creativity in a warm and nurturing environment designed just for you. Everything from our curriculum and leadership opportunities to our afterschool activities and special events are focused solely on what girls need to achieve and succeed in Middle School, Upper School, and beyond. In the vision of St. Angela Merici, Ursuline gives you the opportunity to take center stage, explore your interests, and expand your potential in an academic atmosphere that encourages young women to speak up, stand up, and take action! 

Our Middle School immerses you in a world of endless opportunities, both academic and creative, to help you discover personal strengths and interests in classrooms full of motivational teachers and engaging friends. Our small class size and all-girl focus provides experiences unique to Ursuline. They allow you to express yourself freely, develop higher order thinking and become an integral part of our Catholic Community; a community driven by service, leadership, and respect for self and others. By introducing you to technology through our One-to-One Laptop Program, to original composition through our acclaimed Writer’s and Reader’s Workshop, and creative expression through our award-winning Fine Arts Program, our experienced teachers foster a culture of achievement, which translates to greater self-confidence and higher levels of engagement with the world around you. By fostering your innate curiosity and personal drive in a compassionate environment that promotes independence, growth, and Serviam, Ursuline prepares you to become a leader and an inspiration for change on both a local and global level.
