Life at US

University School's community-centered culture is the foundation for a rich student life. US offers countless opportunities for each student to explore and develop his own interests both inside and outside the classroom. Our teachers help each student identify his strengths, and support him every step of the way. We know that when a student feels valued, he will strive to push himself to reach his personal best.

US gives its students myriad opportunities to pursue their passions. We have nearly 100 clubs and activities to match any interest and allow a student to explore a curiosity, join a group, or share an enthusiasm.

Our students have a chance to make a difference in the lives of others and give back to the community. In our community engagement program, students serve others and lead by doing. Our students plan their own activities, from working at local shelters, food banks, and hospitals, to volunteering at museums, nursing homes, nature centers, and community development centers.

Our diverse and inclusive community is celebrated in all grades. Our students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni are encouraged to share their voices, experiences and ideas openly and authentically. This encouragement helps our boys develop a sense of confidence and integrity that makes them active participants in their world and the global community.

Our students enjoy camaraderie and forge friendships that last a lifetime. Each student is a proud member of a House and participates in school traditions such as Founders' Day celebration and House competitions. These friendships form the basis of our global network of alumni whose pride in US is evidenced by their unequivocal support of the school and of each other. 

In the US community, the possibilities are limitless.
