Strategic Partnerships

Strategic Partnerships

When you were in High School, did you ever:
  
  •    Watch a live-feed of an open-heart surgery?
  •    Work with the IT department at a local university to develop a website? 
  •    Attend a workshop and learn from the former chairman of the Federal Trade Commission?
  •    Create artwork to hang in a local Children's hospital?
  •    Work with local food service providers to open a student-run Smoothie Shop on campus? 
Saint Ursula Academy students are doing these things, as well as many other creative projects, through the partnerships we have created with local businesses and organizations. These relationships allow us to expose our students to effective leaders, a wide variety of career options, and opportunities for assisting those in need. The valuable lessons that are learned when the learning happens outside of the classroom are vital to the development of a well-rounded young lady. We pride ourselves on exposing our students to the endless possibilities that await them after they leave Saint Ursula Academy!

A few of our partnerships

The UC STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program:
Throughout the school year, UC undergraduate students currently enrolled in the School of Information Technology work with their professors to teach “Academy Classes” to Saint Ursula’s students after school.  UC faculty members also develop and deliver curriculum that offers Saint Ursula’s students opportunities to explore “hands-on-topics” and apply what they are learning in the classroom. The students have an opportunity to increase their knowledge and awareness in this rapidly changing industry beyond the framework of using their Tablet PC’s for class. This program also gives them a first contact with University personnel and time on campus as they learn how to best incorporate technology into future curriculum and beyond.   To read more, please click HERE.
 
The Saint Ursula Academy Leadership Academy: 
Through this one-day program, students have the opportunity to meet with business leaders from around Cincinnati.  Topics of discussion include networking, leadership qualities, self-evaluation, and life-long learning.  This opportunity hopes to empower students to grow to their full potential. 
 
Spiritual Journey Week: 
This week, typically held in February, encourages students to focus on the "prophet" and "nurturer" that are part of each individual.  Students are assigned to local non-profit agencies and visit those sites on multiple days.  Students are expected to work with the agencies to complete certain projects, or interact with clients of the agency.  This opportunity opens the eyes of many of our students to the good work that non-profit agencies perform on a daily basis.
