Our youngest and oldest learners share what makes US special.

Forging His Own Path

Boys of all dispositions – intellectuals, athletes, artists, musicians, entrepreneurs – are free to be themselves at US. Students thrive in an environment with freedom to explore, create, move, practice, compete, and play. They learn to own their successes, bounce back from mistakes, accept responsibility for themselves, and step up to participate in decisions for the greater good. US develops well-rounded, considerate, and responsible young men, who are free to forge their own path to success.
