From University School

University School is a place where each boy is inspired and empowered to let his true self thrive. With the freedom to explore, create, compete and play, boys of all dispositions build on their personal strengths, harness their natural talents and blaze their own paths to excellence with joy, confidence and integrity.

Students love learning concepts via themes and engage in hands- on projects to demonstrate systems thinking. Integrated and experiential, this approach successfully prepares them for an ever-changing world that requires creative problem solving, an action- orientation, articulate explanation, and the ability to anticipate the broader societal impact.

Our faculty and staff inspire and mentor our students with integrity and compassion. Boys develop both empathy and respect for others, and appreciation of self. Together, we build an inclusive community with an evolved understanding of what it means to be a man in the 21st century.
