The type of student who should not attend Ursuline Academy is ultimately someone who isn’t open and who doesn’t believe in the power of sisterhood. As cliché as that may sound, that is the glue that brings each and every girl together. We all have a diverse set of interests, talents, personalities, and backgrounds. Any school will have that. But we each believe in sisterhood and we are each open to embracing those bonds and carrying that tradition on for years to come. If a student is adamantly against those ideals and values, than they would not belong at Ursuline.

A student should not attend Ursuline is they are not motivated to become the best version of themselves. It is not a school for the weak-minded or lazy. It requires full effort 100% of the time; it is almost impossible to slack off. Ursuline requires a student who is accepting of all types of diversity. With one of the most diverse classes in my grade, I have learned the beauty and gifts that other cultures bring to this community. One who is not open to learning about different lifestyles and religions is not fit to be a student at Ursuline Academy.

The students who should not attend Ursuline Academy are those who are not willing to put in the time and effort to succeed. One must love school and learning to be an integral member of the Ursuline community. If one is bad at managing time, does not like working with others, and is not willing to participate in some school activity, she should not attend a challenging school such as Ursuline. If one is a bully and has trust issues, she should not attend, as we leave our lockers unlocked and believe that our Ursuline sisters will not steal or hurt anyone.

A student who is not looked to increase and improve their education should not attend Ursuline. This is because it is a rigorous school that assigns a respectable amount of work. If a student is not willing to dedicate in time and effort to their schoolwork, they will not succeed.

If you are not interested in tradition or having another family, do not attend Ursuline. Our school is about 300 years old and some of the original traditions still apply. All the girls here become your family, and they stay your sisters even after you graduate.
