Parent Guild


The Ursuline Parent Guild is a volunteer organization committed to advancing the mission of the school to families and friends of Ursuline Academy.  Its purpose is three-fold:

  • Encouraging volunteer support for the many Ursuline activities throughout our school year.
  • A social network for parents to foster a supportive, informed, mission-driven community.
  • Fostering an Ursuline community that welcomes parents /guardians at all levels of participation.
