University Child Development School
University Child Development School is centered around the lives of children and dedicated to the development of their intellect and character.
We actively encourage, and the school everywhere reflects, the process of joyful discovery that is central to meaningful and responsible learning.
Teaching is individualized and responsive to the talents of each student, and the curriculum is rigorous and integrates the concepts and skills embedded within the major disciplines.
Our students are chosen for their promise of intellect and character and are selected from a cross-section of the community.
Our faculty members are leaders in their fields, supported in advancing their studies and encouraged to share their knowledge widely.
In pursuit of these ideals, and in recognition of obligations beyond the school itself, we strive to be an innovative leader in education, serving as a model for others.
