Admission

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 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 who has similar interests.

Learn more about the shadow visit or schedule a visit by contacting Nancy Webster at nwebster@universityhighschool.org 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 Family Dinner. View details of these events below.

Prospective Family Dinner

University High School’s Prospective Family Dinners are designed for families who may not be able to attend events during the day but who want to take a closer look at our school. Each event for 2017-18 has a particular focus, so families may choose which ones are of interest to them.

Thursday, Feb. 1 — Get an Inside Look at January Term

No one does January quite like University High School. For the first three weeks of the year, UHS students take a break from their usual classes and dive into a single course, from interior design to the history of hip-hop, through our January Term program.

Get an inside look at January Term at the J-Term Prospective Family Dinner on Thursday, Feb. 1 from 6-8 p.m. You’ll learn about this year’s classes, discover what excites teachers most, and hear from alumni about the long-term value of J-Term.

Register to attend the Feb. 1 Prospective Family Dinner by contacting Taylor Newell, director of admission, at 317-733-4475, ext. 421 or tnewell@universityhighschool.org or by clicking the button below.

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.
