Students not only learn Catholic values, they live them.
Ursuline High School is called to a mission that is grounded in the love of Christ and the faith of the Catholic Church. In the Ursuline tradition, Ursuline invites students and families from diverse faith, racial, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds into a community of teachers and learners, of faith and faith-in-action.
As a faith-centered educational community, we nurture each student’s growth in mind, body and spirit. Our intellectually, socially and spiritually stimulating environment encourages students to adopt a way of life that embraces service and challenges them to pursue with equal vigor the goals of academic excellence and faithfulness to Christ.
Our students are given not just the knowledge and skills they will need to prosper in tomorrow’s world, but also the faith and virtues that can make them women and men of outstanding character. Our religious education program includes:
A College Prep Curriculum that Challenges, Nurtures, & Prepares ALL Students
The world around us is continually changing, for your children to become truly ready for what lies ahead, they need an academically rigorous curriculum that keeps pace with the times, yet remains flexible enough to suit his or her individual pursuits. But that is not all.
It is also imperative to teach each student how to think independently, make excellent decisions based on knowledge and experience, and apply what they know with self-confidence. Equally important is to teach them to respect and appreciate the unique talents of others and work together collaboratively for the greater good.
As parents and educators, this is our common goal. This preparation is the real-life advantage of an Ursuline education. Ursuline students are ready for college and ready to be productive members of society. Our belief in the quality of our academic program is supported by these facts:
