About University

Welcome from Head of School Chuck Webster

Head of School Chuck WebsterWelcome to the University High School website. University High School is an independent, college preparatory high school. Our school is rigorous and personalized, and it has taken advantage of best-practice ideas from independent schools and colleges across the country.

The University High School program offers students a comprehensive mentoring program, a January Term devoted to creative and innovative learning experiences, and a daily community meeting that helps to foster a distinct school culture and a school community based on trust, respect, and shared understanding. At the center of the University High School experience is a set of ideas about students: that they are seen as partners in their education; that they be challenged, listened to, taken seriously, and helped to become active participants in their learning and in their lives; that they be encouraged to think about the meaning of their lives and about others, and to think critically; that they be encouraged to develop for themselves a sense of what truth is.

If you have not yet seen the list of college acceptances for University High School students, I invite you to check it out. Welcome to our website and to our learning community.
