Celebrating 75 years of Ursuline education in Boston and Dedham
This year marks the 75th anniversary of Ursuline Academy's founding in Boston in 1946. We meet this historic milestone with pride in our heritage, confidence in our tradition of educational excellence, and optimism in the future of our community. Ursuline Academy is proud, privileged, and humbled to be part of the nearly 500-year history of the Ursuline mission.
Starting in 2021 and continuing through June of 2022, we will celebrate 75 years of educating young women in the Ursuline tradition with a year-long series of events, gatherings, and speakers. These events will begin virtually and will become in-person as conditions allow.
Watch this short retrospective stretching back to Ursuline's days on Arlington Street in Boston and hear from some of our earliest alumnae, including members of our very first graduating class, and their reflections on their time at Ursuline Academy.
