The Ursuline School announced on January 26, 2017 that it has earned accreditation by the New York State Association of Independent Schools, known as NYSAIS.
This accreditation comes after a year of self-study which included all members of our school community – teachers and staff, board of trustees, students and parents.
Unlike other accreditations, the NYSAIS process asked us to evaluate ourselves through the lens of our mission. We evaluated our approach to teaching and learning, our operations and finances, our community and all aspects of school life. The examination also included a visit by the NYSAIS committee. It was a rewarding exercise which strengthened us. The NYSAIS analysis will guide us in our strategic initiatives and add an important validation as we apply for additional grants from foundations. We are proud of our school community for demonstrating how we work each day, to fulfill our mission and educate young women!
