Welcome to a new and exciting year with
Ursuline Academy of Dallas Mardi Gras!

For 25 years our commitment to raise funds for scholarships, fulfilling the Academy’s mission in the total development of the individual student through spiritual formation, intellectual growth, service to others, and building of community, has been a story of success.

Thanks to the support and generosity of underwriters, donors, and participants, Ursuline Mardi Gras has awarded $20,504,596 in student scholarships.

Our goal this year is to meet or exceed raising $500,000 to support Ursuline scholarships and to continue fostering a sense of community through participation and volunteerism in the 2015 Mardi Gras.

Whether by donating, underwriting, attending, or volunteering, we invite you to join us!

from an ursuline scholarship recipient

“I have been attending Catholic schools my entire life. I find that being in a Catholic school provides me with a great learning environment and has enlightened my spiritual life. In a Catholic school, everyone is family, no matter where you come from. I am happy that you have made it easier for me to attend another Catholic school where my family will expand even more! Without your generous gift, it would have been impossible for me to attend Ursuline.” – CLASS OF 2016 RECIPIENT
