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.
