Each year, St. Ursula Academy presents three special awards to students in its graduating class. These awards speak to the essence of a St. Ursula student—caring, selfless, engaged, and supportive of her sisters and her community.
“SUA has an almost tangible atmosphere of positivity. It’s based on creating bonds to facilitate education, but the environment is about so much more than just education. St. Ursula creates well-rounded, supportive leaders who love what they do and are free to pursue whatever that may be.”
Liz Newsom ’21
“St. Ursula is more than a school for our daughter. SUA is a place where she feels secure, unstoppable, and authentic. She is nurtured in her abilities, unstoppable in whatever she dreams to do, and where she can be her authentic self without judgement or limits!”
Jeff and Tori ’92 Crowell, Parents
“Having no natural sisters, I'm not sure I would ever have understood the depth of friendship, empathy, and love [that comes from being part of the SUA sisterhood]. My life built its foundation on these truths.”
Char Wolfe Windsor ’69
“I have been able to find a second home at St. Ursula where I know that everyone here is always cheering me on and helping me become the best version of myself. I wouldn’t trade my time at St. Ursula for anything.”
Gretchen ShopE '22
“I am truly grateful for my SUA education. I want to give a special shout-out to the English department. The teachers prepared me for a collegiate level of expectations, and I feel completely capable in the 'weed-out' classes in all departments of my college. I have been successful in my classes because of the skills I learned at SUA: accountability, time-management, and resilience, to name a few. Also, I want to praise SUA's block scheduling! It is immensely helpful in transferring smoothly to college.”
