For 125 years, Ursuline Academy has served as an academic cornerstone in Wilmington, teaching, inspiring, and developing our students to become leaders both in and out of the classroom. The strength of the Ursuline community, both past and present, and the influence of our academic excellence not only ensure the growth of our legacy for decades to come but also create a comprehensive and collaborative learning environment for our students to thrive in today.
Ursuline Academy’s academic program uses inquiry-based learning, collaborative problem solving and an interdisciplinary curriculum to prepare our students to meet and exceed the challenges of a changing global society. Utilizing the most effective 21st century teaching practices, our academic program educates our students to thrive as learners in an evolving educational landscape and live a life of courageous and compassionate leadership.
Across the country, schools are working to find educational approaches that will prepare their students for the changing world in which they will live and work. At Ursuline, we are leading the way. Through the Ursuline Curriculum, students have the opportunity for an education that is energizing and engaging, deeply relevant and lasting in impact.
At Ursuline Academy, students are driven by more than just a thirst for knowledge. They thrive on the power of curiosity and the satisfaction of finding their own voices. They are dedicated to the practice of faith and service. They are committed to discovering their identities, cultivating their strengths, and taking their rightful place as leaders of our world.
