Mission Statement

We are Ursuline, a college preparatory high school of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Youngstown.
We come from diverse backgrounds in the spirit of St. Angela Merici and the Ursuline Sisters to be living witnesses to the wisdom and virtue of Christ and His Church.
We form a family of faith, achievement, and promise, striving to be life-long learners and responsible citizens in a global society.
Soli Deo Gloria
