About Ursuline Academy

Ursuline Academy is an all-girls Catholic school offering a diverse educational environment from Toddler 1 through 12th grade. Founded in 1727, Ursuline Academy of New Orleans enjoys the distinction of being the first all-girls’ Catholic school in the United States. As girls progress through the academy, a highly interactive approach exposes them to increasingly complex concepts in STEM and the arts that go beyond learning the material.

The academy offers an extensive curriculum, which includes rigorous academic coursework and incorporates honors, accelerated, and Advanced Placement offerings for students. A comprehensive and diverse curriculum provides every Ursuline student with the opportunity to develop her unique skills and talents. The fine arts program includes theater, drama, choral music, orchestra, piano, dance and a wide variety of visual arts classes. STEM initiatives begin as early as kindergarten, and students are encouraged to explore many academic and career paths throughout their time at Ursuline. Specialty programs, such as entrepreneurship, provide opportunities for students to learn from professional mentors while engaging in course work relevant to real life.

To succeed in tomorrow’s world, Ursuline believes girls must learn to think creatively, articulate their ideas confidently and compassionately, and solve problems collaboratively. Ursuline Academy develops tomorrow’s brightest independent thinkers, innovators, and community builders. From the first female law professor at Loyola University New Orleans to a U.S. senator and a U.S. Army colonel, Ursuline women lead fearlessly. At Ursuline, girls find the confidence to challenge themselves beyond academics and explore who they want to be.

Starting in early childhood, Ursuline’s Reggio Emilia-inspired approach builds each girl’s confidence, social-emotional resiliency and appreciation of others. Continuing throughout the academy, Ursuline’s all-girls’ environment empowers girls to challenge themselves, explore outside their comfort zones and expand what they are capable of achieving.
