Providing resources & opportunities

There is tremendous momentum at University School. With the extraordinary philanthropic support of our alumni, parents, and friends, US is on an upward trajectory while we implement our most ambitious plans for today and for the future.

We want to make it easy for you to get the information you need. From this portion of our website you may contact someone in the advancement office with questions, learn more about endowment and capital initiatives, get information about planning a gift, understand our Annual Fund effort, or make a secure Annual Fund gift online. 

We completed our $100 million campaign to enable us to recruit and sustain an outstanding faculty, to increase our commitment to financial aid, and to provide compelling spaces in which to teach and learn.

Through increased support of the Annual Fund, which surpassed our $3 million goal in support of faculty, US has become the compensation leader among independent schools in Northeast Ohio. Financial aid is a top priority as we seek to make the school accessible to the region’s most promising boys regardless of their family circumstances. The new academic wing at the Hunting Valley Campus is a spectacular testimony to the difference US has made in so many young men's lives. Thanks to the support of many, the $40 million project was fully funded before we broke ground. We have now completed phase II of the master plan which included the renovation of the former classroom building into new facilities for the visual and performing arts, and the creation of the Class of ’71 Student Commons in honor of George Enos ‘33.

This is an exciting time in the history of US. We invite you to be a part of it. Please feel free to email me at or call me directly at 216-292-2152 if we can be of help to you in any way. 

Best wishes and thanks,
