Our kids love ULS because the learning environment is much different than at a public school. Every student is an individual at ULS.”
Parent of 11th grader and 8th grader
ULS has provided a wonderful environment for our son to discover himself. The concerts and musicals are a special highlight in his ULS experience. It’s been exciting to see his confidence grow alongside his talents in singing and performing. We’re grateful to all the staff who have nurtured and encouraged him to go for it.”

I love ULS because, in addition to rigorous academics and teachers that challenge my kids, they learn through service to become the people we know they can be.”

University Lake School is an amazing place with passionate and talented teachers, forward-looking administrators and spaces designed for living, loving and learning together. I wanted to be a kid again and have the chance to think, learn, grow and develop in such a place.”

ULS is a gem of an educational option in Lake Country. After only three days, I quickly learned the most important thing about this school: the extent of the commitment to knowing and loving kids. That’s the essential ingredient that makes learning deep and achievement in the classroom, the playing fields and the arts so pervasive.”
Former President of the National Association of Independent Schools
ULS outdoor education deepened my interest in learning about leadership and management and encouraged growth [by pushing me] far outside [my] comfort zones.
