Ursuline Academy New Orleans  Founded in 1727, Ursuline Academy is the oldest, continuously-operating school for girls and the oldest Catholic school in the United States.

We're going bananas over our cheerleaders! Our high school cheer team won the coveted banana on the very first night of camp for being most spirited. Great job, girls! They just can't hide their Lion Pride!! #UrsulineGirls #UA #GoLions

"Ursuline shaped me in so many ways as a young girl, and I am forever thankful for the experiences I had and the life-long friendships I made within her walls.This is why I love being a part of the Alumnae Board and giving back to such an amazing institution. Ursuline Academy has been a part of my life now for 28 years. My hope is that my daughters love Ursuline as much as I do and continue the tradition of giving back to the place that gave and continues to give me so much." - July Alumnae Spotlight and 2018-2019 Alumnae Board President, Amber Randazzo Peskin, Sioux of 1999

Wishing our Ursuline family and friends a safe and Happy 4th of July! It's amazing to think that our Ursuline Sisters were in New Orleans, taking care of soldiers and educating young women, nearly 50 years prior to the formal adoption of the Declaration of Independence! #4thofjuly #uanola

Camp U's Fabulous Friday was awesome! A wonderful showcase of our talented campers. #CampU

We're celebrating National Praline Day! Did you know that it was our own Ursuline Sisters who were the first to add pecans to pralines? When the Sisters left France to come to New Orleans, they brought many recipes with them. Pralines were a favorite French candy that was made with almonds. When the Sisters arrived, they did not have access to almonds so they added pecans instead. Thank you, Sisters, for pecan pralines! #nationalpralineday #pralines

Today may be the first official day of summer but it's not the first day of summer fun for our littlest campers! #UrsulineGirls #CampU

Here's an update from our Beyond Our Borders group: "We visited the center of the earth! All of the girls had the opportunity to walk along the equator. We also had an opportunity to tour Quito, the capital of Ecuador. Today we will take a long bus ride to the Chimborazo province where we will complete our service project. Everyone is happy, healthy, and exhausted." #ServiceLearning #studyabroad #beyondourborders
