We Learn Not for School, but for Life

Ursuline is a place where I come to grow and to thrive.  I love seeing so many friendly faces everyday, and I have learned so much beyond the classroom. I thank God everyday that I have the opportunity to go to Ursuline!
Susan Morand, Class of 2014 (St. Margaret of York)


Ursuline is the best thing that could have happened to me in terms of high school. I came from a huge public school where there were so many people I didn't know. At Ursuline I know everyone and people know me. It's so nice to be part of a close knit community I would call my second family. It's also refreshing how much responsibility we are trusted with at UA. This responsibility allows us to learn how to manage our time in the best way for us. Ursuline is all around the best place any girl in high school could be.
Sarah Locaputo, Class of 2016 (Liberty Junior High School)


Ursuline is everything I could want in a school wrapped into one.  The teachers truly care about my success, the schedule allows me to be independent, and the environment makes me want to go to school everyday. Whether you are into theater, athletics, or academics, Ursuline always has something to offer.  I will never regret my decision to attend UA! 
Grace Reilly, Class of 2016 (St. Mary School) 


"Strong academics. A faith-filled community. Extracurriculars for anyone and everyone.  Friends that will last a lifetime. These are just a few of the things that make Ursuline Academy such a wonderful place. I am so grateful to be able to attend a school where everyone wants me to succeed. Even though the real world may be a "jungle" at times, an Ursuline Lion can handle anything! 
Colleen Ray, Class of 2016 (Sacred Heart) 


The community of students and faculty here at Ursuline is unlike anything I have ever experienced. Even though I leave my family every morning to go to school, I feel as if I am back at home once I walk through the front doors. Everyone truly cares for and supports one another.
Sarah Connaughton, Class of 2014 (St. Michael School)

Ursuline is a place where you are welcomed and cared for. From the amazing teaching staff to the best friends you make here, there is a feeling of unity and sisterhood. Ursuline is a place where I strive to be the best while being alongside those who are the best. Ursuline is home.
Victoria Klee, Class of 2014 (Indian Hill Middle School)

Ursuline jump-started my formation as a serious, critical thinker. College is challenging, there's no doubt about that, however, I feel completely prepared and able for the challenge. Ursuline also helped my development as a whole person; I am thankful for Ursuline's emphasis on academics, spirituality, service, and growth.
Ellen Hinkley ’13 (Fordham University)


The all-girl environment allowed me to focus on developing myself as a woman for the world. I think I have entered college as a very confident person, and I have Ursuline to thank for that.
Lauren Tassone ’13 (The University of Michigan)
