St. Ursula Academy


Mission Statement

Founded in the Ursuline tradition and rooted in the Catholic faith,
St. Ursula Academy educates each young woman, transforming her through intellectual inquiry, personal growth, spiritual formation, and compassionate service, empowering her to lead confidently in a global society.


Each girl is one-of-a-kind. She learns, connects, and serves the world in her own way. We see her as special, too.
At St. Ursula Academy, we embrace each student for who she is. We care for her as an individual. And, while she is with us, we prepare her for college—and for life.
Through our rigorous academics, our empowering all-girls environment, and our faith-filled focus, we help our Arrows become young women prepared to take on the world.
