Our College Counselors are with your daughter every step of her college decision journey. They provide accurate and relevant resources regarding college admissions. A student works with her College Counselor all four years at Ursuline to help ensure that she finds her perfect collegiate match.

Because Ursuline is a college preparatory school, 100 percent of its students are enrolled in a rigorous curriculum, one which exceeds the expectation of most colleges and universities.

All Ursuline students graduate and are accepted into four-year colleges and universities.

College Counselors work with admissions officers at colleges and universities to reinforce Ursuline’s reputation for strong academics and well-rounded graduates. The Class of 2018 was awarded a total of more than $26 million in merit-based scholarships. Approximately 78 percent of the 214 graduates also graduated with honors.
