Completed applications, test scores, and academic records are examined by the admissions committee. The committee seeks applicants that show readiness for the rigorous college preparatory atmosphere at Saint Ursula Academy. High School Placement Test scores along with grade school records will be the primary criteria for selection. Legacy will be considered as a positive attribute only, meaning a lack of legacy will not hurt an applicant. In very specific situations, the committee may ask for a reference to address a specific area of question or the committee may contact the grade school principal to follow up on a specific issue.
In accordance with the Archdiocese calendar, the admissions committee will send decision letters on January 8, 2017
. An acceptance letter will also include financial aid offers, notification of academic scholarship, and notification of conditional acceptance. Per the Archdiocese policy, no one from Saint Ursula will contact any accepted student until after January 16, 2017. However, an applicant may contact the Director of Admissions or Assistant Principal for Student Affairs to clarify any questions or concerns at any time.
Registration for the Class of 2021 will be January 25, 2017
. Families may register between the hours of 7:30am and 3:30pm
. Should this date pose a conflict, please notify the Director of Admissions as soon as possible. All registration materials will be included in the acceptance packet.
After the enrollment date (January 25, 2017), a wait list for admission will be used if the class is filled. To be placed on the wait list, a student must be accepted for admission to Saint Ursula Academy. The student will be placed in the order in which the family notifies the school of their desire to be on the wait list.
For the Class of 2021, the admissions committee will award several merit scholarships for excellence in academics to students achieving the highest scores on the High School Placement Test. These scholarships are renewed every year as long as the student maintains a cumulative grade point average above a 3.0 and remains in good standing with Saint Ursula Academy. Financial assistance is also available to qualified students. More details about financial aid are available at www.saintursula.org/tuitionandfinancialaid.aspx.
