  • How can I arrange a tour of the school?

    There's nothing quite like walking our beautiful campus, exploring buildings, and seeing our girls in action. 

    But this year is crazy. And the health and safety of our visitors, students, faculty, and staff will remain our top priority. We are currently restricting visitors to campus, but have some availability for small private tours and other events that get your family a piece of the Ursuline experience in the safest way possible.

    View our event calendar to see what's coming up, book one of our private tours, explore Ursuline virtually, or contact us for a digital package if you'd rather explore from the comfort of home. Applications are also open for the 2022-2023 school year if you'd like to apply now.
