Educating Global Leaders
Ursuline Academy commits to educating global leaders focusing on the Ursuline mission through active service, intellectual enrichment, co-curricular programs (locally and abroad), sister school relationships, and other partnerships.
Students engage in a variety of transformative experiences which help them grow in global competence. As they get to know and touch the realities of other cultures, they gain new appreciation for different perspectives and a better understanding of what it means to be a citizen of the world. They also have the opportunity to share a unique sisterhood with students around the globe.
The trip was a complete cultural immersion, and I loved the authenticity of it all! These experiences allowed me to escape my comfort zone and learn new things I would not otherwise have encountered. Coming to Brazil on this delegation also gave me a better perspective on life around the world. Even though our lives are different, our values and beliefs were so similar - in large part due to the rich Ursuline and Catholic tradition instilled at both our schools.
