Great announcement to end the school year with news for the 21-22 school year!!

On May 20, 2021 it was announced to the Faculty and Staff of St. Ursula Academy that the school was selected by the Leadership Program for Girls as the first National Girls’ Leadership School in the Country. This is due to the school’s innovative work in leadership development and its rigorous standards in academics.

To quote from the letter received by the Faculty and Staff: “The Leadership Program for Girls is advised by a team of the world’s foremost thought leaders in leadership development from Harvard University, The Center on Leadership and Ethics at Duke University, The U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and other leading education experts across the country.”

To quote from the letter the Ursuline Sisters received: “For the past 167 years, your legacy and the legacy of St. Angela Merici have flourished in our halls. The Ursuline Sisters taught generations of young women to learn and lead and to make a difference in this world. This legacy continues in 2021k where learning and leading are more crucial than ever. It is in that Ursuline spirit ithat we have exciting and important news to share with you.”

Beginning with the Freshmen Class of 2025, The Leadership Program for Girls courses and special activities will be taught exclusively at SUA as part of the school’s college-prep curriculum.
