Lower School | 1st-4th

Our way of teaching
is just for girls.

Visit

We shape hands-on projects in a way that keeps girls engaged with new — and challenging — concepts in STEM and the arts.

As an extension of our early childhood philosophy, our Lower School approach uses highly interactive experiences to continue building each girl’s courage, social-emotional resiliency and appreciation of others.

Ursuline girls are trailblazers — unafraid to explore or try something new. They work together and think bigger about what they can accomplish.
