President's Welcome

Welcome to The Ursuline School

Dr. Colleen Melnyk

It is with great joy that I welcome you to The Ursuline School where we are celebrating 125 years of excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service! As the oldest Catholic high school in Westchester County, our rich history and time-honored traditions connect our storied past to today’s girls, uniting generations of women from around the world who share the treasured Core Values of an Ursuline education.

Building and strengthening meaningful connections is truly at the heart of why The Ursuline School is the area’s premier Catholic school for girls. We develop a close-knit community of smart, capable, highly accomplished young women who actively engage in the pursuit of knowledge while remaining faithful to our tradition of Serviam, a commitment to service that all Ursuline students embody.

We are blessed with a diverse and talented faculty who are committed to our Mission and invested in the academic success of each student. Ursuline teachers are lifelong learners, skillful in empowering students to reach their fullest potential within our carefully tailored curriculum that responds to the evolving needs of today’s girls.

We are grateful to our generous benefactors and alumnae who love us deeply and have helped us to envision and build state-of-the-art learning spaces that truly set us apart from other top-notch area schools. And when classes are done, our robust athletics, arts, and student life programs provide an abundance of opportunities for students across all grade levels to build lasting friendships and develop leadership skills along the way.

We invite you to learn more about our dynamic learning community by exploring this website or by contacting our Admissions team. I hope you will gain a sense of the Ursuline spirit and perhaps one day realize for yourself the true beauty that’s at the heart of an Ursuline education.
