A Commitment to outstanding faculty

Teaching at US, at its core, is built on relationships. Our teachers make connections with their students that extend beyond the classroom. With opportunities to mentor boys through a tough stage in life, or challenging them on the athletic field, we have witnessed countless teachers who have made lifelong relationships that transcend the traditional model of a teacher-student association.

US is committed to finding outstanding faculty and supporting them. This is evident in our $100 million WE ARE US! The Campaign for University School, as supporting faculty is one of its main initiatives. We are setting the standard for faculty compensation and our faculty has engaging opportunities for both professional and personal growth. From experiences in Cambodia, to training with the most cutting-edge technology, US teachers are sometimes learning as much as their students.

While teaching at US, you are surrounded by remarkable colleagues. Authors, artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, and the like, US teachers practice what they preach. It is no exaggeration to say that our faculty members are one of the most accomplished, driven, innovative, and fun group of professionals you could be around.
