A morning information session and tour of Ursuline Academy will be held on Thursday, May 9, from 8:30 - 10 a.m. at the school’s campus at 85 Lowder Street in Dedham. All prospective parents are invited to attend, whether interested in admission for this coming September, or to get an early start on a school search for another year. Ursuline Academy is an independent Catholic school for young women in grades 7-12 that fosters respect, compassion, intellectual curiosity, and a commitment to service.

All Admissions events are open invitation, but we ask that you register for events via Ravenna for any fall events.
We look forward to getting to know you and your daughter in the coming months. Should you have any questions, please contact the Admissions Office at 781-493-7727 or

Open House ~ Sunday, October 28, 2018 from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.

The Open House is a wonderful opportunity to meet Ursuline's experienced faculty and staff and to learn more about our programs and activities while touring our beautiful campus and facilities. To ensure a unique experience for every prospective student and her family, each is paired with her own student tour guide (a hallmark of the Ursuline Academy Open House).  The tour is the center of the experience,  and a prospective student can customize the tour based on the student's interests.  Tours on average last about one hour.  

You have the option of pre-registering for the Open House via Ravenna or registering at the door on the day of the event. Pre-registration allows you to sign up for a specific tour time.  If you elect to register at the door, your tour will begin as soon as we are able to accommodate your group.

Should all time frames become filled, pre-registration will be closed and you will be welcome to register at the door on the day of the Open House.  

Applicants' Night ~ Tuesday, December 4 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Open to all prospective students and their families (regardless of application status), this event allows you to take a closer look at Ursuline Academy.  Representatives of our entire community will be on hand to meet you and answer your questions. Hear from our current students about their experiences. Meet and speak with academic and program department heads.  Current and alumnae families and students will be in attendance as well! 

This event will be different than our October Open House, so be sure not to miss it!  However, if you were not able to make the Open House this would be suitable substitute. (Note that campus tours will not be available at this event.) 

Register via Ravenna for Applicant's Night. 

Parent Only Coffee and Tour ~ October 17, November 20, December 11 and January 8

We invite you to join us for a Parent Only Coffee. The morning will include the opportunity to meet faculty, administration and members of the Admissions Team. Tours will also be available on these mornings. This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about Ursuline Academy in an informal setting. Parent Only Coffee and Tours are being held on the following dates; register via Ravenna.

Visit Dates ~ Select Days from October 2018 through January 2019

All applicants are required to attend a UA Visit Day as part of the application process. During the campus visit, applicants will be paired with a student host and attend classes and lunch with her. The day also includes a campus tour and an interview with a member of the Admissions Committee for applicants to Grade 9 and above.  Applicants to Grades 7 and 8 will participate in a small group activity with a member of the Admissions Committee.

UA Visit Days are offered on select days throughout the application season. Space is limited each day, so we encourage you to register early to secure your desired date.  

Register for a visit day via Ravenna.
