Class of 2026


Congratulations, Ursuline Academy Class of 2026!

In the Catholic tradition of Ursuline education, Ursuline Academy prepares the young woman for college and beyond by nurturing her soul, intellect, heart, and imagination. We know that each admitted student embodies the Ursuline spirit and commitment to excellence, service, and spirituality, and we would love to welcome her into our Ursuline sisterhood.
