Serviam” is Love in Action

More than our school motto, Serviam is at the heart of the Ursuline Difference.


Serviam, "I will serve"

Ursuline students answer St. Angela's call to Serviam through active service to the community. A multitude of service opportunities are available throughout the school year. Some recent projects include service to the poor, the hungry, and the sick, among others. Students prepare and deliver meals, plant trees, share their artistic and musical talents, participate in food and clothing drives, support various charitable organizations, raise funds, increase awareness, and assist those in need locally and globally.

Students participate individually, with friends, club or team members, and classmates. There are school-wide opportunities throughout the school year. At times, parents are encouraged and invited to join in, which helps to strengthen our connection with Ursuline families and further our commitment to the shared values that unite TUS. At Ursuline, Serviam is truly love in action.

The #1 reason I chose Ursuline was because of their amazing volunteer work. I have a sister who is a resident at Elizabeth Seton Children's Center and having seen the Ursuline volunteers helping out throughout my childhood, Ursuline was the only choice for me.
