Academic Achievement

My heart is grateful and will always hold dear the 4 years my daughter had at Saint Ursula.  I look forward to watching her journey as she carries with her the values, confidence, pride, and wisdom she has received from SUA.  Sending her to SUA was the best financial investment we ever made!
-Lynn Montag, past parent

4-Bell Collegiate Model

Our 4-Bell Collegiate Model has proven effective in easing the transition into college.
 
Students learn more effectively in the collegiate model of scheduling.
 
The collegiate model provides four longer, typically, 80 minute classes per day – sufficient time to stimulate and develop thought and discussion, to write an in-class essay independently, to work cooperatively in solving a math problem, or to complete a science laboratory session with a partner. Unlike an A/B block schedule where students take up to eight classes at a time, students in the collegiate model take the same four classes each day for a semester; then, in the next semester, have the opportunity to take four new classes. Click HERE to read more about the 4-Bell Collegiate Model.
 
 
 
“Our daughter finished her first year at a highly selective university and she commented numerous times that the rigor of the 4 bell day schedule prepared her above and beyond her peers. This comment also speaks to the faculty and the drive to “push” students to do the best of their ability.”
