Visit University High School

Spending time at University High School is the best way to see all the school has to offer. We have several opportunities each year for prospective parents and students to visit our campus, see our teachers in action, experience our welcoming community, and get their questions answered.

Open Houses provide a great introduction to University High School and are an ideal first step of the high school search. Prospective Parent Breakfasts and Prospective Family Dinners offer a more in-depth look at University for middle school and transfer families. And the shadow day is the ultimate visit experience for students. We encourage prospective families to take advantage of as many of these opportunities as possible.

Shadow Visit for Students

One important part of the admission process at University High School is the shadow visit. Students in grades 7-12 spend a day at University attending classes, community meeting, and lunch with a host student with similar interests. Learn more about the shadow visit or schedule one by contacting Nancy Webster at or 317-733-4475, ext. 102.

Upcoming Admission Events for Families

In addition to the student’s shadow visit, we encourage your family to attend a University High School Open House as well as a Prospective Parent Breakfast or Prospective Family Dinner. View details of these events below.

Open HouseOpen Houses

At a University High School Open House, prospective students and their families get a personalized tour of the school from one of our current students and/or parents. Guests also have the opportunity to attend information sessions about University’s one-of-a-kind mentoring program, college counseling program, January Term, one-to-one laptop program, and culture, mission, and educational philosophy. Financial aid information is also available at these events.
