Central to the philosophy of Ursuline Academy of Dallas is concern for the student as an individual and commitment to the education of the whole person. Evidence of this concern and commitment imbues every aspect of school life.
In accord with the school’s history of honoring tradition while forming students for the contemporary world, Ursuline Academy provides an array of learning experiences. Stimulation of intellectual curiosity, development of critical thinking skills, and fostering of creative problem-solving lead students to a life-long commitment to learning. In the all-girl setting, an atmosphere of warmth, trust and encouragement promotes both academic achievement and the formation of friendships. The four-year high school experience of close and caring relationships ultimately expresses itself in an enduring community among alumnae, their families and the faculty.
