Middle School | 5th-7th

We challenge each girl to reach
her highest abilities.

At some schools, middle school can be a time when girls stall out academically. Not at Ursuline.

Here, there are no gender stereotypes to demolish. Our girls play every role. And they compete against all-boys’, co-ed and other all-girls’ teams — from Quiz Bowl to robotics — and win.

Our highly interactive approach in STEM and the arts keeps girls engaged with new and challenging concepts. We encourage girls to explore outside their comfort zones, try something new and expand what they’re capable of.

Our middle school girls set themselves up for high school success — whether that’s working hard to become an honors student or building leadership skills through different clubs.
