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.
University School teachers are masters of their discipline and inspire and mentor students with integrity and compassion. The faculty is accomplished, 86% have master's degrees or higher, including 12 Ph.Ds., three J.D.s, and one M.D. They understand how boys develop and learn, providing a structured yet supportive environment in which each boy can build confidence and discover and develop his own ideas and talents.
As an all-boys' school, the faculty focus with intention on learning that addresses not only how to excel academically but also how to grow into a young man of integrity and empathy. Making friends and connecting with adult mentors, boys develop both empathy and respect for others, and appreciation of self, and an evolved understanding of what it means to be a man in the 21st century.
