The Quebec Ursuline School exists since the time of Mary of the Incarnation. The teaching methods have changed, but the mission of education has always been important for the Ursulines. Some areas of the school are important to visit, such as the reception hall and an 19th-century classroom, with its storage closets filled with natural science collections. With the Ursulines, the students studied music, art, and science. Avant-garde for women at the time! Today, the school is co-ed. The Sisters no longer teach, but some still counsel and help the pupils. There are schools of Ursuline tradition all over the world.
