Ursuline Academy’s Upper School is a vibrant place for girls to continue their educational journey and the four years are filled with discovery, growth, engagement and expectation. Ursuline distinguishes itself by providing a rigorous learning environment; one that fosters excellence, develops leaders, embraces diversity, creates lasting friendships and promotes service and civic engagement – always centered in the principles of St. Angela and formulated in the ways in which girls learn best.

Designed to develop the 21st century skills necessary to thrive in an increasingly complex world, our academic and co-curricular programs engage students in opportunities that cultivate creative problem solving, leadership, innovation, digital competence, community involvement, collaboration and global perspective. Our teachers hold the highest expectations for our students, inspiring them to excel as they realize their inner promise. Our students strive to meet those standards, and, in the process, emerge from our school a strong, confident trailblazer ready to leave your mark on the world.

For 125 years, our Upper School graduates have left our halls and entered the world as competent, compassionate, confident, and courageous leaders rising to the top of their collegiate classes and as leaders in their industries. With you, our legacy lives on.
