Ursuline Honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

At Ursuline Academy, our nurturing community - diverse by design - puts a young woman's curiosity at the center. Our highly interactive approach builds each girl's confidence, social-emotional resiliency, and appreciation of others. Our Ursuline girls celebrated the life of  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in many different ways. From "peace cakes" which combined many different colors, to reading stories, creating collaborative art installations, and writing down their hopes and dreams for humanity - it was a wonderful celebration. We have much to learn from a man who contributed so much to our world.
