Ursuline Academy of Wilmington, Delaware, is a Catholic, independent, college-preparatory school, serving girls age three through twelfth grade, and boys age three through third grade.
Founded in 1893, Ursuline Academy provides a nurturing educational environment, emphasizing academic excellence and service to others.
The mission of Ursuline Academy is the development of the whole person in a faith-centered community built on values of academic excellence, respect, and social consciousness.
Ursuline Academy empowers students for leadership and service in our global society.
Young women who choose Ursuline Academy graduate from our academic program fully prepared for success at leading colleges and universities.
Our all-girl environment affords them opportunities for leadership not always available in a co-educational school.
Research confirms that single-sex education is better for girls because it develops their self-esteem and leads them to great achievements.
In an atmosphere of trust and faith, students are motivated to excel academically, to think creatively and critically, to speak and write well, to pursue careers in diverse fields, and to become involved in their school and communities.
