Dear Ursuline Students and Families,
I am so happy to welcome you all to the 22-23 school year, the 296th year of Ursuline education in the United States. By choosing to be part of Ursuline Academy of New Orleans, you are part of a unique Catholic school in our city and country. With a history of providing quality education in New Orleans for 295 years, our incoming 8th graders will make their own history as the 300th class, the first in the United States!
We continue to grow as one school community, from the babies in Lily House to the graduating seniors, those who have been part of Ursuline for many years, and those who are new to our school, guided by the mission of the Ursuline Sisters and Ursuline Academy, under the guiding motto of Serviam – I will serve. Welcome to all!

Dr. Karen G. Jakuback
Academy President
