Parent Resources

Our Strategic Priority:
Focus on Student Well-being

We invite you to explore the Parent Resource page on the Ursuline website. You’ll find references to a wide variety of information resources, from books and articles on student wellness to research on how girls learn. There’s also a calendar of events of special interest to parents of teenage girls. This dynamic page will be updated on an ongoing basis. So we encourage your feedback, and look forward to your suggestions on what you’d like to see added as the page evolves.

Ursuline's Mission to totally develop the individual does not start and end on campus. The resources provided on this page are intended to help you navigate today's world with a teenage girl.

While not a complete list, here is a sampling of resources recommended by Ursuline faculty and staff that you can utilize as a parent to assist in your daughter's overall well-being. If you have any requests for topics, or suggestions for additions to this page, please contact us at

Current parents are also welcome to utilize the Ursuline Library Resources. An Overdrive account will grant you access to our eLibrary. Parents are welcome to browse our collection and can email Librarian Renee Chevallier to request an account.
