List of 7 frequently asked questions.

  • What is the admissions process?

    To apply to Ursuline Academy, complete an online application, submit the appropriate application fee, and provide the past 3 years of academic records and standardized test scores (as applicable). A grade-level assessment will be required for each applicant.
  • When should I apply?

    Applications for all grade levels are open beginning in the fall for the following school year.

    Girls applying for 8th grade only will complete a Archdiocesan Application Card (available December 9, 2020) in addition to Ursuline's online application. Both are due by December 11, 2020.

    The Early Childhood and Elementary early application deadline is Wednesday, December 9 and early notifications will be sent by January 31, 2021. Admission past the early deadline will be taken on a rolling basis as space permits.
  • 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, or contact us for a digital tour package if you'd rather explore from the comfort of home. Applications are also open for the 2021-2022 school year if you'd like to apply now.

    If you have any questions or need additional information, contact the Office of Admissions
     at 504.866.5292 or admissions@uanola.org.
