Ursuline Academy Is Staying Relevant

Written by Bill Laurienti

Ursuline Academy of New Orleans is a Catholic school for girls offering a strong educational environment from early childhood through a college preparatory secondary program.

The Academy values each student’s unique qualities, nurtures the whole person, develops leaders with confidence and compassion, and prepares them for life in a global society.

That’s why when Ursuline, like so many other schools, needed some help engaging students at a higher level than ever before, they turned to SmartLab Learning to support their mission.

They recently implemented a SmartLab HQ to introduce their K–12 learners to STEM via hands-on, collaborative learning. That advantage and the opportunity to stay relevant was exactly what the Ursuline Academy Catholic School’s headmaster wanted for their students.

What about your school?
