|Many different kinds of boys thrive at University School. There is no typical profile for a candidate. We are seeking promising, motivated boys who want to be challenged, who are excited to learn, and who will contribute in significant and unique ways to the diverse programs we offer.|
We believe that the ideal educational environment should be fully representative of the communities we serve. So that University School can be enriched by the presence of boys of special ability from all walks of life, we offer need-based financial aid.
University School is indeed a special place where boys who come with a variety of interests, talents and from diverse backgrounds develop into accomplished and independent young men. Please visit the school and see for yourself what a difference University School can make in your son’s life!
|We especially appreciate that US is a school that knows how to work with boys, and that its staff is comprised of many male role models who can offer guidance at the critical turning points in the life of a high school boy. We have witnessed the growth of boys from awkward and shy 9th graders into poised young men brimming with confidence. Every parent wants their child to have the opportunity to fulfill their potential. US makes that desire a reality.

We Understand Boys' Learning Styles
|University School is an all boys’ school by design. We understand how boys learn best and tailor the instruction to their learning styles. Our all boys’ environment is a safe place where a boy is free to excel in areas where he is strongest, but also to take chances outside of his comfort zone. Please click here for detailed information about courses and curriculum.
At US, students are supported and challenged to stretch themselves while developing their academic, athletic and artistic talents. They can pursue their own interests under the watchful guidance of caring adults without the judgment of what boys “do” or “don’t do.” As a result, US boys are poets, actors, athletes, and artists. In the classroom, they are more inclined to take intellectual risks. In social interactions, there is less pressure to act a certain way. At US, a boy can grow within himself and discover what makes him truly happy.
Before deciding on US, we looked at other schools in the area. When you walk through the halls you realize the history and legacy of this school. It's powerful. US does an amazing job giving boys so many ways to be successful, whether in athletics, academics, music, art or drama. This is what brought us here and what is keeping us here.
