The admissions committee examines completed applications, test scores, and academic records. 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 addition, based on academic profiles, some students would benefit from specific skill work before starting school in August and will be required to attend the Summer Workshop Program offered at Saint Ursula Academy, for two weeks in June, as a condition of admission.
Prospective students who are interested in the Educational Services (ES) Program must submit a separate application at the time of admission to Saint Ursula Academy. In order to guarantee a high quality of service, the ES Program maintains a small number of students in each class. Our ES Program Coordinator, Ms. Geri Walsh, along with the admissions committee, reviews each application for admissions to the ES Program
at the same time as the general application review.
In accordance with the Archdiocesean calendar, the admissions committee will send decision letters on January 15, 2020. An acceptance letter will also include financial aid offers, notification of academic scholarship, and notification of conditional acceptance. Per Archdiocese policy, no one from Saint Ursula will contact any accepted student until after January 20, 2020; however, an applicant may contact the Director of Admissions to clarify questions or concerns at any time.
Enrollment for the Class of 2024 will be January 29, 2020. Families must enroll between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Should this date pose a conflict, please notify the Director of Admissions as soon as possible. All enrollment materials will be included in the acceptance packet.
If the class is filled on the enrollment day (January 29, 2020), a wait list for enrollment will be used thereafter. To be placed on the wait list, a student must be accepted for admission to Saint Ursula Academy. New applicants will still be considered and placed on the wait list only if admitted.
Saint Ursula Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin in admitting students to all its programs or in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered program.
