Why Ursuline

hp-slideshow landing

Infused by the spirit of Serviam (I will serve), Ursuline Academy is distinguished as a premier educational institution and center of culture and faith. Three cornerstones and signature programs combine to make Ursuline unique in the Dallas area.

Our Ursuline Heritage and Catholic Identity

We are Catholic with an Ursuline identity that forms the foundation for all decisions, planning for the future, and the ways in which cherished traditions are translated into new contexts for new generations.

We Are All Girls

Girls take center stage at Ursuline Academy of Dallas. Our students are strongly encouraged to develop their own interests. And they are empowered to become bold leaders. Studies show that girls find it easier to excel and become more confident learners in a student-centered, all-girl setting.

Tradition and Innovation

Throughout its 143-year history, Ursuline has lived in the center of both tradition and innovation. We are committed to providing a learning environment which stimulates creativity and curiosity, sparks innovation, and encourages collaboration.

“There are many advantages of attending an all-girls school, especially the ability to become a presence in the classroom. All-girls schools encourage women to explore and participate in all subjects.”
