Ursuline Academy held two Junior Ring Ceremonies for the members of the class of 2022 during the week of January 25.
Ursuline Academy has earned the College Board AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in its AP Computer Science Principles course during the 2019-20 school year, the first year in which the course was offered at Ursuline. Schools honored with the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award have expanded girls’ access in AP Computer Science courses.
On December 11, Ursuline students brought Christmas cheer to White Oaks Cottages, a memory care facility in Westwood, in a "Christmas Caravan."
Three Ursuline seniors signed letters of intent to compete in college athletics next year. Nicole Olson, a goalkeeper, signed with the University of Scranton, and Division 3 school in Scranton, PA, to play for its soccer team. Kelly Cheevers will also be playing soccer for Division 1 Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT. Makenzie Haughey will play lacrosse for Division 2 Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, VT.
On the eve of the presidential election, Mr. Ward's Civics and Current Events class is wrapping up a simulated election that gives Ursuline students hands-on experience managing a political campaign. Tasked with running the campaign for a fictional candidate, Juanita Sanchez, students were in charge of getting her elected with the use of proper strategy, targeting, fundraising, and mobilization.
