On Saturday, April 17th from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. about 55 board members and school administrators from our 3 high schools, Academy of Mt. St. Ursula in the Bronx, The Ursuline School in New Rochelle, NY and Ursuline Academy in Wilmington, Delaware. It was so energizing to see all these groups in the same room sharing the same passion and interest in Ursuline Education. We discussed how our schools are alike and looked at our Core Values. At each of our schools, we are so fortunate to have some great lay people and Ursuline Sisters working together.
The Ursuline Education Core Values include: Spirituality & Faith, Community, Peacemaking, Openness to Change, Excellence in Education, Serviam ("I will serve"), and History and Angela's Heritage.
It was great to see how all those involved in each school agreed upon these and how each school is working within its own student population to live and promote Angela's mission and ministry.
