My daughter is in 8th grade and loves the school. She was a New student last year and found it easy to make friends. There does seem to be a real spirit of service among students and faculty. They help each other and outsiders. She is also challenged and excited by her honors classes.
I'm a graduate and have family members and family friends in the HS now. Terrible environment full of drama and bullying. I've never imagined the things that I've heard about these girls. I attended for 10 years and graduated but will never send my daughter here
you should be very cautious about sending your daughters to this school. i had three daughters here and have taken them all out to go to another school. the new administration are not leaders and do not deserve to be running a school of this stature. we had many good years at Ursuline and there are many good people that work at Ursuline but this past year with the new admin has showed me that this is not where my children need to be for the future.
I just graduated from UA as a Mac of 2012 and I highly recommend it. The school is beautiful with it's own rich history. Only UA graduates can marry in the beautiful church! This is something I am looking forward to! The girls in my class were so close, and I have made friends for life. The teachers are passionate and the class sizes are small. I learned so much at Ursuline, and it has given me excellent preparation for college. UA also taught me a lot about my faith and my relationship with God. You will leave UA as a confident, well rounded woman.
My daughter is so happy at Ursuline! The school really cares about the girls and the small class size really makes it seem like a family. She is doing well academically and has a wonderful group of friends. I couldn't be more pleased with Ursuline Academy.
I agree with the May 15th posting. One of the meanest schools my daughter ever went to. She is now in High School, happy and doing well and till this day she says "she did not know what depression was, until she attended this school" Bullying from Teachers and Students
I go to Ursuline and i love the school, the teachers, and the people
Ursuline is an incredible school and I am very satisfied with. Ursuline has a history like no other's, and I am pleased with the will to teach or our teachers. It is my second year here at UA, and I have had nothing but good experiences. Ursuline has reached out and everyone's talents and interests are accepted and apprieciated. The academic progam is very impressive, as are the important art progams here. The classes are smaller which assuages the learning of the students. The students are granted more attention from the teachers. This school has not disappointed me.
I do not recommend this school unless, you have lots of money, politically connected or have a mother, grandmother that attended. This school seems to favor these girls over just regular girls.
I have a daughter in her 1st year at Ursuline Academy High School and we are extremely pleased. The small size of the school enables the girls to reach out to each other, and it is much easier to be appreciated and develop individual strengths and talents. The new principal seems commited to the quality of the academic program and the discipline. The academics are challenging and appropriate. The campus is beautiful ,especially the National Shrine where many ceremonies and masses take place. The girls are truely cared for at Ursuline Academy High School.
I highly recommend Ursuline Academy. The girls I have met and the environment in which I am surrounded by I believe is unlike other schools. At Ursuline, you know everyone because you see the same faces everyday. This school has helped me grow academically as well as spiritually. Choosing Ursuline was the best decision I have made. I am convinced that any other school would jsut fall short. Go Macs 2009!
I am currently a student at this school and recommend this school to any girl who loves to have a great time and is up for a great learning experience plus your duaghter is going to have the time of her life and grow into a great and strong young woman. If I were any parent I would totaly choose this school for my daughter. I promise you going to Ursuline Academy has changed my life and I'm sure that it will trully change your daughters. Go macs of 2012!! thank you!
I am a graduate of Ursuline (class of 2005...go Sioux!) and I loved that school! There is no better enviroment for girls that age. The teachers are great, and Rally is the best!! I highly recommend my Alma Mater...:)
I am a parent of two at Ursuline, an 8th grader and a senior. They are third generation on both sides of their family. Ursuline Academy is a very special school and very strong in our history. It is a school that produces strong young women who are ready to go out in the world and serve their community as leaders. If you are looking for a school for your daughter, there is no other than Ursuline Academy. Once she visits Ursuline she will not want to visit another. It is greatly recommended to join the Ursuline Family. Go Sioux '84.
I not a parent or nothing i just go to ursuline if you ever thiking about sending your child to any school let ie be,ursuline! gabbie will be class of 2013
I am not a parent of Ursuline, but I am a graduate of the class of 2000. I went to Ursuline from 2nd grade all the way through 12th grade. There was no question in the world where I would attend highschool. My mother is also an Ursuline graduate. I loved the family atmosphere of Ursuline. The friends I made there will last a lifetime. The academics prepared me very well for college. I now attend Our Lady of Holy Cross Nursing School and I am soon to graduate. Ursuline was the best time of my life and I will never forget the spirit and love the school gave to me! There are so many extracurricular activities to be involved with; there is something there for everyone. The only thing I have left to say is, Go Macs! -Kristin
I'm not a parent, but I am graduate of the Ursuline Academy class of 2000, and I have nothing but praise to offer the school. The all-female environment is absolutely wonderful, and the size of the school is perfect. There are just enough students for individuals to meet different kinds of people, but not so many that it hinders the close-knit bonds that are formed between almost all students at Ursuline. The rich traditions of the institution combined with the accelerated academics make Ursuline Academy a wonderful place to spend your high school years! - Johanna Hochhalter class of 2000
