Ursuline Academy is an independent college preparatory school for young women in grades 7–12. Located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, United States, it is owned and operated by the Ursuline Sisters, a worldwide teaching order. The academy is a private Catholic school located on a 28-acre campus in Dedham, Massachusetts. It provides education in all areas and offers over 20 clubs and 15 varsity sports. The Boston Globe has praised Ursulines' athletes, the Bears, as winning the Singelais Award for maintaining a 3.0 GPA or higher and excelling in their chosen activity.

History[edit]

The first Ursuline Academy in the Boston area opened in Charlestown in 1819. In 1957, the growing school relocated to its present site.[3]
