USJ's Upper School prepares students for success in their post-USJ careers by helping them develop strong and consistent study habits and a solid core of fundamental academic skills, including analytical and critical thinking, time management and organization, creativity, and engagement with different forms of assessment. USJ offers standard, honors, and Advanced Placement courses in a challenging and supportive educational environment, with all courses helping our students work towards the entrance requirements of the college of their choice.
USJ's School Profile is sent to colleges with a student's application. It explains the coursework, grading scale, and graduation requirements and provides a snapshot of the class scores, including SAT, ACT, and quintile averages. It also contains information on colleges of acceptance for USJ graduates. To download a copy in pdf format, click here. You can also view it in Adobe Acrobat Reader or get a copy of the School Profile from the college advising office.
USJ is self described as a college prep school, but beyond academics they provide outlets such as athletics, performing arts, clubs, etc. for our children. This allows students the ability to develop their skills and personalities, which they will use in the real world to be successful.
