Education should find the best in a child.
Whatever their strengths -- artistic talent, scientific prowess, leadership skills -- students need the right balance of guidance and freedom to nurture these abilities.
At University School, our students find the teachers to inspire them.
They find the room to explore possibilities open to them.
They find the independence and confidence to achieve.
And, above all, they find what is best in them.

School Notes:

  • University School welcomes inquiries throughout the year. Families are encouraged to apply as early as possible, beginning in September, for the following school year. The Admissions Committee evaluates applicants on the basis of the student's school records, teacher recommendations, interviews, and admissions tests. University School also carefully evaluates a student's talents, skills, interests, motivation, and character to identify those applicants who would be successful within our unique learning environment. Beginning in January, the Admissions Committee will consider candidates on a rolling basis until all vacancies are filled. Later applications may be considered for waitlist status.
