West Tennessee's College Preparatory School

University School of Jackson is West Tennessee's college preparatory school. It offers a challenging curriculum in a nurturing and safe environment. We educate students from PreKindergarten (2-year-olds) through the 12th Grade.

A Nurturing Environment for Learning

From the child-centered environment in the Lower School to the college advanced placement courses in Upper School, USJ offers your child an education that will prepare him for college and success in life. USJ gives each child the resources he needs to succeed and to develop his full potential.

USJ teachers and staff work in partnership with you and your child in providing an education that goes beyond a strong curriculum. We share your values as parents as we emphasize character education and helping your child make the right choices. Grounded in Judeo-Christian values, USJ provides an environment that stresses a respect of one another and of all religions.

A College Preparatory Curriculum

At USJ, we provide meaningful, age-appropriate, and challenging opportunities for your child to learn. We also integrate the use of technology in our classrooms at all grade levels.

• The Lower School’s curriculum is sequential. It focuses on the needs of the individual child as each lesson builds on what that child already knows.

• In our Middle School, the curriculum becomes more content driven as we provide a transition to Upper School. Teachers use a variety of teaching methods – from hands-on science labs and lectures to cross curriculum activities – to address the various learning styles of our students.

• The Upper School offers honors, Advanced Placement, and regular college preparatory classes to meet the learning needs of all students. All of our graduates meet college entrance requirements.

A Standard of Excellence

Is your child a soccer player? A trumpet player? Or a chess player? Do his talents shine on the stage? Or in a leadership role? The breadth of activities at USJ provides opportunities for every child’s interests outside of the classroom. At USJ, we educate the whole child in a standard of excellence that becomes the culture for all that we do.

A quality education is a wonderful gift to give your child. We invite you to experience the difference at USJ.
