Welcome to St. Ursula Academy!

Did you know that there is a very real difference in middle and high school experiences for girls in Northwest Ohio? Since 1854, St. Ursula Academy has partnered with our parents to create a truly outstanding and transformational experience for our graduates.

What is it that sets St. Ursula Academy apart? Is it our exceptional academics that prepare your daughter for college and life beyond? Is it our culture of service to others that permeates every aspect of student life? Is it our culture of developing and empowering young women to lead in the future? Is it our sisterhood fostered by SUA’s all-girl environment that inspires graduates 50 years later to celebrate with their fellow classmates and life-long friends? Is it our faith formation, calling each young woman to live the Gospel values? Is it our athletics that boast numerous league, district, regional, and state championships across a wide spectrum of sports? Is it our incredible fine and performing arts program with three Carnegie Hall performances in the last five years?

It’s all of the above and more. But it’s not only our what; it’s also our how.

The SUA difference is the joyful and nurturing learning environment that offers each young girl the opportunity to transform into a confident, compassionate, empowered young woman who is fully prepared for her future.

St. Ursula Academy is a school built on tradition, innovation, academic rigor, and caring faculty—all inspired by St. Angela Merici, the foundress of the Ursuline Order, our sponsor. St. Angela Merici’s goals were to inspire young women to grow in faith, explore their academic potential, lead with confidence, and help those in need. Today, this holistic approach to educating women has never been more important.

But don’t just hear it from me. Hear it directly from one of our graduates:

“I am so proud that I graduated from a place that instills pride in being a strong female leader. I’m grateful for the time and energy that the faculty and staff at St. Ursula invest in students’ lives.

Going to an all-girls high school instilled confidence, a strong work ethic, and extremely valuable communication skills. You are a part of a welcoming environment that encourages young women to pursue their passions.”

Or, as a senior parent recently shared, “the academics are phenomenal.”

I invite you to learn more. Visit us, meet our team, and find out for yourself why we are Undeniably Ursula. 

I look forward to meeting you!
