A History of Excellence
Located in the heart of Hampton Township in Allison Park, Pennsylvania, St. Ursula School has been educating children in kindergarten through eighth grade for more than 100 years. Founded in 1911, St. Ursula School prides itself on providing an unparalleled Catholic education. This is evidenced by exemplary standardized test scores, award winning academic and athletic teams, and our esteemed alumni who have gone on to achieve great things in both their professional and spiritual endeavors.
Small Environment, Big Opportunities
St. Ursula School has always fostered the growth of the whole student. In addition to a challenging academic and catechetical curriculum, students have opportunities at St. Ursula unlike those at any other school. In addition to all the traditional sport and musical programs, students as young as second grade can lector and cantor weekly Mass. Third grade students perform in multiple stage productions, can begin playing school sports and can compete nationally in the Math 24 competition. Fourth grade brings the opportunity for participation in the school band and competition in the Battle of the Books. At the middle school level, students are offered the opportunity to participate in robotics, Student Council, forensics, and Science Olympiad with new opportunities added yearly. With class sizes averaging 15–18 children, each child is challenged to discover who they are and is given the chance to excel in multiple pursuits.
Our Faculty, Our Pride
The faculty of St Ursula School is one of the most tenured in the area. Over 80% of St. Ursula School teachers have been at St. Ursula for five or more years. 90% have at least 10 years total teaching experience and more than half the faculty has advanced teaching degrees. Most importantly, as evidenced by many comments and observations from our alumni, the teachers and staff of St. Ursula are committed to the success of each individual student. Chris Churilla, 2002 St. Ursula graduate said it best: “To me, they were not just teachers, they were friends and role models. The teachers always were willing to give an extra helping hand when in need to make sure the students were grasping the material.”
A Connected Community
St. Ursula School prides itself on creating an environment of open communication between parents, students and faculty. By utilizing online software, parents of students in first through eighth grade can view their child’s academic progress online at any time and can communicate any questions or concerns immediately to the teacher or principal. Parent–teacher conferences are held twice yearly to promote communication and assessment of a student's progress. The faculty and staff of St. Ursula School work in conjunction with our school parents, alumni, & our parish family to create a community dedicated to raising children who will enter our school to grow and exit to serve our greater community.
