An independent Catholic school for young women in grades 7-12

Why Ursuline?

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.

Nothing is holding me back."
"I never would have imagined myself doing this a year ago."
"I feel that I can take on any challenge.

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.

There are many independent schools in the Boston area. Few, if any, are like Ursuline Academy.  When COVID-19 impacted schools everywhere, Ursuline rose to the challenge.  See what our parents had to say:


Thank you, Ursuline. Virtual learning has been seamless and kept our daughter learning and connected to her classes, classmates, teachers, and clubs. We can’t wait to get back to school and again enjoy, in person, the spirit and fun… Ursuline is truly a rigorous, supportive and joyful place for our sophomore daughter and two daughters that are graduates.

When my work life exploded on March 10th, the one thing I did not have to worry about was my daughter’s remote schooling. Many thanks to all the teachers, staff, and administrators at Ursuline for all their hard work this spring!

Thank you, UA, for not missing a beat and everything that you're doing for my daughter -- all the students, staff, and community at large! Very impressed with the great care and high caliber education you continue to provide during these challenging times. Feel extremely fortunate to have our daughter at UA! Amazing school!
