We can't wait to see you!

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 events to see some of what's coming up, book one of our private tours of campus, explore campus virtually, or contact us for a digital 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.

The Importance of Discovery

The Academy’s challenging curriculum, inspiring visual and performing arts programs, diverse selection of extracurricular activities, and competitive athletic offerings provide endless opportunities for students to explore and cultivate interests and passions of all kinds. The Ursuline girl may find herself in many roles: scholar, athlete, artist, explorer, leader, writer, mathematician, scientist, thespian, and philanthropist. However, the most important role — the one we hope she will always feel comfortable in — is being herself.
Ursuline Academy is an all-girls Catholic school offering a strong educational environment from early childhood (Toddler 1) through a college preparatory secondary program (12th Grade). Founded in 1727 by the Sisters of the Order of Saint Ursula, Ursuline Academy enjoys the distinction of being both the oldest school for girls and the oldest Catholic school in the United States.
Today’s Ursuline offers an education rooted in a tradition of formation and innovation, nurturing the development of the whole person – intellectually, spiritually and physically. Our students are prepared for leadership and service in the world they will inherit.
