The Ursuline All-Girls Advantage

Discover our steadfast tradition of educating, inspiring, and empowering girls since 1897!

The research is clear. Attending an all-girls, private, independent school sets young women up for success both academically and personally. In fact, girls educated in an all-girl environment benefit across all academic achievement metrics when compared to girls who attend co-ed schools.

In short, girls benefit when they learn together.

At The Ursuline School, we take the all-girls advantage personally and have 125 years of excellence to prove it. Our patroness St. Angela Merici and the Ursuline sisters dedicated their lives to the education of girls. That’s why Ursuline schools worldwide are united in their mission to educate girls and empower them to use their God-given gifts and talents to better the world. 

We fulfill that mission each day at The Ursuline School by fostering collaborative learning, design thinking, and problem-solving at every grade level in unparalleled learning environments equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. 

Year after year, our girls consistently set themselves apart with outstanding academic achievements and leadership skills that first take shape within our walls, and then unfold far beyond our campus.

With the support of our entire community, Ursuline students explore and then exceed their own boundaries en route to becoming wise, active, and globally-minded leaders well-prepared for college life and beyond. In the spirit of St. Angela, we educate, inspire, empower, and achieve.
