Freedom to forge his own path.

At University School, boys have an expectation to be more. They think deeper, embrace challenge, and discover new passions. US boys become men of character who lead and serve.

Our teachers are unrivaled.

University School faculty and staff inspire and mentor our students with generosity, integrity, and compassion. Experts in their discipline, our teachers are accomplished authors, artists, scientists, athletes, entrepreneurs, and mathematicians. They come from places near and far and share diverse and global perspectives with our students every day. Our teachers practice what they teach.

We know how boys learn best.

Here boys thrive in an environment with the freedom to explore, create, and innovate. We pique curiosity and challenge boys with a vigorous, interdisciplinary curriculum. Boys develop skills to prepare them for success in our global community: communication, teamwork, critical thinking, and problem-solving. Boys at University School become young men of character who are prepared for a bright future.

Each boy has a home here.

University School is a positive, welcoming, and diverse community that fosters true belonging. Boys are valued for all their contributions – academic, artistic, athletic – and learn to value the contributions of others. This helps our boys develop confidence, empathy, respect for others, integrity, and an appreciation of self. US students build friendships that last a lifetime.
