Please make sure you read this week’s update very carefully, as we have new COVID updates to report. We continue to keep the health and safety of our students and staff in mind as cases rapidly increase.
For this week’s update, I am excited to announce that we have listened to the needs of our families and surrounding community and will now offer care for boys and girls ages 6 weeks to 1-year-old starting August 1, 2021.

The Lily House at Ursuline Academy, named in honor of Ursuline foundress St. Angela Merici, will be located on the first floor of the Nashville Convent on the Academy's 11.5-acre campus. This nursery program offers both a 10 and 12-month option and both options are Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. care.  The newborn teacher/student ratio is 1:4 and the Toddler 1 ratio is 1:6. The Lily House will serve a maximum of 24 children. 

I am deeply grateful for the significant financial support we have already received for the renovation of this new space. I am confident that we are meeting an important city-wide community need. The addition of these littlest students will most definitely enhance the mission of our academy. Please share this good news with friends and family. For additional information, click here.

Cor Unum,

Dr. Margarita O'Byrne Curtis '69
Academy President
