A message TO PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES IN THESE UNUSUAL TIMES
We offer our warmest tidings during this time of uncertainty as our communities are working to prevent the spread of COVID-19. University High School is transitioning entirely to e-learning through April 30, 2020 and will continue to follow the advice of local, state and federal officials as to when we will be able to resume our regular school life on campus. During this time, our students will be attending classes remotely using Zoom video conferencing according to a modified daily class schedule.
Both Nancy and Taylor are available to you as always. While we are not on campus, please know that we are still 100% accessible via email, telephone, or video chat. As you consider University as an option for your student, we will continue to work daily to assist you with gathering information or working through the application process.
Obviously, we cannot host shadow visits on campus at this time, but instead we would be happy to connect you with our current teachers and students via email or video conference. Prospective students are also invited to observe one or more of our e-learning classes. While we know this is not the same as observing a regular school day on our campus, our teachers have done tremendous work to maintain dynamic, interactive e-learning environments in line with University’s mission and core values.
Lastly, we wanted to share some remarks from our Assistant Head of School (and soon-to-be our new Head of School come August), Alicia LaMagdeleine: “University’s hallmark has always been our focus on relationships, and the faculty’s commitment to preserving connections with students and mentees in this time of physical distance has been remarkable. As we move forward, there are chances for creativity and connection all around us. Our community is our greatest strength.”

WE FELT LIKE OUR SON WOULD BE OKAY at the public high school, but we wanted more for him than just getting through his high school experience. We wanted him to thrive, to reach his potential, and to be a more well-rounded individual. He is already making great strides at University!

THIS IS A SPECIAL PLACE. The faculty and staff truly care about their mission and develop real relationships with students. It may not be the right fit for every student, but if it is the right fit, it is absolutely worth the investment. University High School has provided my students with the best possible environment to grow as a learner and an individual.
