An Ursuline Academy student would be described as the most hardworking and determined individual there is. The rigorous academic environment calls for the toughest, who will put their best foot forward no matter the circumstance. Students at Ursuline also love to be involved. There is a plethora of clubs and community service opportunities that 85% of the student body participate in. It is a sisterhood, bonded through our academics and activities. Ursuline has a place for everyone and a student should attend Ursuline Academy if they are up for never having a dull moment.

Ursuline Academy is an all-girls school for students who want to build lasting friendships, have opportunities to be leaders, and learn not for school, but for life. This student should yearn to challenge herself in taking rigorous courses. She should put herself out there and introduce herself to new students and build relationships with the lovely teaching staff. She should be flexible and learn to manage time wisely with the unique modular schedule. She should be compassionate and caring in this diverse sisterhood.

When I think of a typical student at Ursuline Academy, I ultimately think “Renaissance Man” (the only exception is that Ursuline is an all-girls school, so, Renaissance Woman may be more appropriate). Girls at Ursuline are the type of students to take and excel in multiple AP and honors courses, be state champions on the field or on the court, be award winning artists and singers, and dedicate the rest of their time to community service. At Ursuline, one word is instilled in our brains and our hearts that ultimately shapes the development of our personal character. That word is Serviam, which is Latin for “To Serve”. Everything we do is manifested in the idea of service and benefiting our community as whole instead of just ourselves. However, what I think most closely describes the students at Ursuline is tradition. We are a school that bleeds pride and tradition. Whether it is in our pep rallies, senior skits, monthly liturgies, or catholic schools week, the energy is tangible. This energy sparks from the most important aspect of what makes up an Ursuline Girl. That is sisterhood. So, a typical student is one that puts her sisters needs before her own and who always knows that as far as she may be from her home at Ursuline, she will always have her sisters in her heart.
