Mission and Beliefs

St. Ursula Academy prepares each of our students for college and for life. 

Our rigorous academic curriculum, empowering all-girls environment, and positive and supportive atmosphere allow each young woman to grow and thrive—in our halls and in her life beyond SUA.  

Our Mission Statement

Founded in the Ursuline tradition and rooted in the Catholic faith, St. Ursula Academy educates each young woman, transforming her through intellectual inquiry, personal growth, spiritual formation, and compassionate service, empowering her to lead confidently in a global society.

St. Ursula Academy, grades 6-12, is Toledo's oldest all-female, Catholic, fully-accredited, college preparatory school and has been educating young women since 1854.

The Ursuline Core Values of Education are the foundation of Ursuline education in Ursuline schools and institutions throughout the world.

At St. Ursula Academy, the following values inspire our school community to live in the spirit of the foundress of the Ursuline Sisters, St. Angela Merici, and of Jesus, as found in the Gospels.
