USJ Campus arial

With our school's mission always at the forefront, The University School of Jackson’s Board of Trustees and Administrative team shares the USJ’s 2022-2027 Strategic Plan. This plan promises to intentionally direct the school's day-to-day operations with consideration of the school’s long-term goals. It will also serve as a foundational document as we seek re-accreditation with the Southern Association of Independent Schools in the 2022-2023 school year.
