High School | 8th-12th

Every girl shines
in our sisterhood.

Visit

At Ursuline, we get each other. We come from different backgrounds, share different beliefs and bring different talents to the table.

It’s the kind of sisterhood that unleashes the power within each girl — the courage to take risks, wrestle with mistakes and find new solutions, and articulate her own ideas.

High school is the time to step up. Try new things. Go head to head with different points of view. Make mistakes. And find a place to shine.
