Established in 1931, St Ursula’s College is a dynamic Catholic day and boarding school for girls in Years 7-12. The College is part of a global network of Ursuline schools and is a faith-filled community inspired by the motto- Serviam: I will serve.
St Ursula’s College provides an innovative and caring environment where girls are challenged to be critical thinkers, curious learners, confident communicators and leaders. We empower our girls to apply their gifts and talents to realise their potential as agents of transformation in a contemporary world.
Like our Foundress, St Angela Merici who lived in the 16th century in Italy, and established the Ursuline Order, we are committed to seeking new possibilities to maximise opportunities in any sphere of life. The spirit of St Angela shapes our educational approach, where students are celebrated for their unique qualities and potential to step forward in the empowerment of others. As educators, we continue to be inspired and directed to deepen our understanding of the human person and our relationship with God. Living in the way of St Angela, her spirit shapes our vocation as educators to,
“ …consider the respect (we) owe them, for the more you respect them the more you will love them, and the more you love them, the greater care you will have for them. Then it will be impossible for you not to have them all graven in your hearts night and day, each one individually, for true love acts in this way.” (Intro to Counsels)
At St Ursula’s College, we live out this vision through our mission to grow in wisdom, justice and integrity.
I hope that you enjoy our website and that you gain an understanding of how an Ursuline education offers your daughter a foundation for shaping her life.
