Welcome to University!
AT UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL, we are excited to welcome prospective students and families to our campus.
Choosing a high school is a big decision, and we are thrilled that you are considering University. During our admission process, we seek to get to know each student and their unique interests, and we encourage families to learn all they can about our school as well.
There are many opportunities to get on campus and experience University in person. Submit an inquiry to get added to our email list, and we’ll share all the ways you can visit and discover more about University High School!

A message TO PROSPECTIVE trailblazers
Greetings from the University High School admission office!
In a recent message to the University High School community, Head of School Alicia LaMagdeleine wrote this: “The wonderful thing about being a school is that after every set of goodbyes comes another set of hellos.” The goodbye she wrote of was to our Class of 2023, which we had just celebrated days before at their graduation ceremony. The hello is to the nearly 100 new Trailblazers who will join our school for the 2023-24 school year. It’s a beautiful, if bittersweet, cycle of tearful goodbyes and joyful hellos.
This year, the thought of goodbyes and hellos rings especially true in our admission office. In June 2023, we said goodbye to Nancy Webster, University’s founding Director of Admission, when she retired after 23 years at our school. But we also said hello (sort of) to Ashley Crockett-Lohr, who left our communications department to join Taylor Newell in admission. Between the two of us (Taylor and Ashley), we have experienced 26 school years at University — four of which, for Taylor, were as a student himself. We look forward to working together and to working with you in your search for the best-fit high school. We promise to greet you with a most joyful hello.
There are several ways for you to engage with us and see our school community in action. We welcome 8th grade students (and above) to register for a shadow day visit and encourage students of all ages and their families to attend an Open House. Parents are welcome to attend our Prospective Parent Breakfast or arrange a personalized school day tour with one of us so that they may see our students and faculty in action.
A great place to start is by requesting more information about University High School or by scheduling a visit with us. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time with questions or concerns. We look forward to meeting you!

My suggestion for prospective families would be to send your kids for a shadow visit to all of the potential schools you are considering — including public schools. You will know what school is right for your child and family.
