Frequently asked questions
A message from the admission directors
At University High School, we ask students to think deeply about their work; to ask questions of their teachers and one another; to take creative risks; and to push themselves to connect their classroom work to the greater community.
In athletics, we created an inclusive policy that encourages students of all abilities to participate in competitive IHSAA interscholastic competition. Our fine and performing arts program allows students in choir, jazz band, string ensemble and percussion ensemble to compose and perform. We encourage students to collaborate and perform their original pieces in assemblies and at formal music concerts.
The school day includes a daily community meeting, a time for sharing creative endeavors, ideas about happenings of the day and reflections on student work. Community matters to University High School, and we devote thoughtful time to creating community on a daily basis. The best way to learn about a school is to visit it for a day.
We invite students to spend a full day at University High School. The shadow visit allows students to experience a typical day to ask questions and to reach a fuller understanding of the University High School difference.
We invite parents (on a day other than their child’s shadowing day) to visit here for all or part of a school day. We welcome interested parents to take a close look at who we are, what we believe in and how we live our core values of diversity, commitment to excellence, stewardship, mutual respect, support and trust, personal responsibility and creativity.
Sincere thanks for your interest in University High School. We welcome your questions and comments and hope to hear from you.

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.
