Alumnae Spotlight

Johanna Hochhalter Logan, Mac of 2000,
Middle School Language Arts Teacher

"Today, as a middle school teacher at Ursuline, I hope that I can help students see that potential within themselves. I try to create a space where they can be themselves and take a few risks. I want them to know that if they try something new, great things can happen. I also want them to know that if they fail, they are surrounded by others who will love and support them. With any luck, students can build on these experiences when they start high school."

Ursuline Arts Festival

A Historical Journey of Ursuline Music
Join us on Thursday, April 12th from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. for the Ursuline Arts Festival. Elementary and high school students will showcase creative expressions in a collaborative and open environment. 
The student-led festival will offer audiences the opportunity to stroll through the Academy's 11.5 acre Uptown campus to experience diverse expressions of music, visual arts and performing arts. The festival is free and open to the public.
The festival will feature a salute to Sr. Elizabeth Marie Landry who taught music for fifty-one years at the Academy, the Senior Art Show, Visual Arts showcases, and musical showcases. It will also include "Remember the Ladies" which is a way for American History students to honor women who have made major contributions to America.  In letters to her husband, Abigail Adams asked future President John Adams to "remember the ladies "as the founding fathers were creating this new nation.  Ursuline students continue to live up to Mrs. Adams' request. Each junior has chosen a woman influential in American History to portray during the festival. Those attending the festival are encouraged to interact with the students. They will be in full costume, ready to mingle and answer questions as their character.

Alumnae Association

To Induct an Honorary Alumna

On May 19, 2018, beloved high school secretary, Cora Caruso, will be inducted, as an Honorary Alumna, into the Ursuline Alumnae Association of New Orleans.
