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 support system for parents to foster a supportive, informed, mission-driven community.
  • Fostering an Ursuline community that welcomes parents /guardians at all levels of participation.

Parent Guild Volunteer Opportunities


Become a Class Parent Representative

A wonderful opportunity to get to know your daughter’s classmates and fellow parents better! As a Class Parent Rep, you will help to create a bond between parents in your daughter's grade. Class parents coordinate a few social events for parents and/or students and serve as a liaison between parents and Ursuline for information, questions, and opportunities to serve the community.

Become a Parent Ambassador

Join a group of enthusiastic Ursuline parents to serve as part of our welcome team and as a community resource for new families, to help promote the school on social media and private school review sites, to provide testimonials and word-of-mouth endorsements in the greater community, and to volunteer at on-campus admissions and enrollment events.

Hospitality Opportunities

Parents assist with refreshments, registration, and greeting guests at various school-sponsored events throughout the school year. This also includes an appreciation event for faculty and staff.  Opportunities to sign- up will be posted as events draw near.

Campus Beautification / Decor Opportunities

Volunteers assist with various seasonal projects throughout the school year, such as helping maintain the gardens/outdoor planters and decorating the lobby at Christmas.
