This school is not what it promotes itself to be. The administration care more about the promotion of the school than the people in it. Their marketing campaign is so shiny and elaborate that you find yourself believing in this school and so excited - until your child is there and you find out that this administration is completely artificial and manufactured- the curriculum is completely watered down by unlicensed instructors and they do not care about you unless you are a big donators/contributor. So many schools to pick that aren't just a pretty facade

You couldn't ask for a better school. Rich in the Ursuline tradition; rich in spiritual development; rich in development of the gospel values and Ursuline Core Values of Education; rich in being the oldest all-girls school in northwest Ohio; rich in community and sisterhood; quality academics and extra-curricular activities, sports and clubs, music, art and dance.

St. Ursula Academy is a place that challenges and supports students on the way to maximizing their potential. Our students are accepted at the top colleges and universities across the country and are well prepared when they enter higher education. The all-girl environment empowers each young woman to build confidence, courage, and self-direction, and the Catholic environment encourages spiritual growth as well as a commitment to service.

SUA was by far the best choice I have made! The friendships I made at my time there are still incredibly strong years after graduating. There was never a teacher or faculty member that did not want the absolute best for me and my future.

As an employee of 7+ years, I have had the privilege to watch the growth of the school from a 9-12 high school building to the addition of the 6-8 Junior Academy and into the recent renovations. That ongoing growth is reflective of my own experience as an educator and that of my students. As I have myriad opportunities to expand and diversify my skills and content knowledge, my students have opportunities to explore a variety of core and elective courses, including honors and Advanced Placement, as they become young women ready for the next phase of their lives. There is no place quite like it!
