Weekends with our Host Families

We are closing out a full weekend of time with our host families.  The girls have been living life as UA Dallas students – accompanying their new “families” to soccer games, lacrosse games, confirmation practice, mass and living normal student life.  Our delegation has learned a lot about what life is like for a UA Dallas student.  The opportunity to experience life at a sister school is one of the hallmarks of our Global Education program and something that sets Ursuline Academy apart from other schools.  We have a network of sister schools built on the same values and beliefs – the tenets of St. Angela.  It is moving to see our girls connect with their sister community in the ways of our founder.

Dallas has a lot to offer and we barely scratched the surface of amazing sights to see.  Many of our girls had the opportunity to visit the local malls – they wouldn’t be teenage girls if they didn’t want to see where their host sisters shop!

Our delegation was also treated to some of the historical sights in Dallas.  Check out some of their photos below!
