An independent Catholic school for girls in grades 7-12

Why Ursuline?

There are many independent schools in the Boston area. Few, if any, are like Ursuline Academy.

In an environment rooted in Catholic values and academic excellence, guided by the principles of St. Angela Merici, we cultivate a confident and courageous community of highly motivated girls. By combining the focus of each individual student’s heart, will and intellect with the support of our entire community, our young women are empowered to explore their boundaries and live beyond them.

As part of a school of “sisters,” our girls live out the motto of "Serviam" by making great intellectual and ethical contributions to each other, their school, communities and the world.

An Ursuline education is the foundation of success in college and a lifetime of intellectual, spiritual and personal growth. Our graduates emerge as confident, high-achieving, compassionate young women ready to take on challenges and contribute positively to society.
