Driver's Ed

For over 50 years, the Driver’s Education Program at The Ursuline School has proudly served the community, giving countless students the tools, education, experience, and confidence to be safe and responsible drivers. 


  • Open to ALL high school students who are residents of NY state.

  • Students must be at least 16 years old with a Learner Permit.


  • The program is offered in the Fall, Spring, and Summer.

  • Sessions during the school year (Fall and Spring) consist of two in-person, weekly classes: an educational lecture class and an in-car driving class.

  • The condensed Summer session consists of multiple classes every week, covering both the educational lecture class and in-car driving class.

  • Both components work together to form comprehensive learning that can be applied in real-world scenarios.

  • Taught by experienced state-certified instructors.
