Upper School

Since 1893, we have empowered young women to discover and employ their unique talents as leaders and global citizens. Supported by a liberal arts and science foundation, Ursuline’s curriculum provides the most relevant, effective, and proven teaching practices, which spark passion and encourage collaboration.

Infused with the spirit of St. Angela Merici, our motto is Serviam, meaning “I will serve.” Students learn to adapt, empathize, and serve with resilience. We are committed to helping young women grow spiritually in a faith-based community.

Every student is provided with opportunities and support to find their unique voice. Through global
education, a leadership and innovation curriculum, STEM, arts, athletics, and clubs, our students become confident, young women – leaders who will make an everlasting mark on the world. Ursuline graduates are known for being accomplished and innovative. Our alumnae have saved lives in war zones, founded life-changing judicial courts for those in need, and led presidential campaigns. Some have even advanced technology companies into global prominence.

At Ursuline, every young woman is embraced into the lifelong bonds of sisterhood. Our students often
remark how they feel a deep level of trust knowing that they can always count on their sisters to be
there for them, no matter what. As we look forward to welcoming a new freshmen class next school year, we know from the first time they step foot on our campus, they will be warmly received by over 200 sisters. This strong sisterhood, one that unifies and includes every student, is what makes Ursuline so special.
