Why are bright, motivated, inquisitive students drawn to US?
We set a higher bar. Superior academics, dynamic teachers, and a challenging, hands-on curriculum motivate top students to reach higher, to push further.
We expect more and we get more from our students. US teachers and coaches inspire boys to dig deeper within, to persevere, and to excel. Time and again, our graduates say that US gave them the brainpower, the confidence, and the character to succeed in college and in life.
Whether your son is entering kindergarten, middle school, or high school, I will promise you this: we will give him a life-changing launch pad for the future.
A US education is the best investment you will ever make in your son’s life. But, don’t take my word for it. Only our students, teachers and alumni can truly convey what makes this school so special. Listen to their stories here, or better yet, schedule a visit soon to experience the exciting academic environment and see why University School is like no other school in Northeast Ohio.
Stephen S. Murray, Headmaster
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.

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.
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.
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.
