University Lake School is a college preparatory school that delivers an incomparable education driven by high standards and a unique approach to learning. Our dynamic and rigorous curriculum challenges the whole student by integrating innovative academic, leadership, athletic, artistic and service learning experiences within a vibrant and joyful community.

We inspire:
Intellectual Curiosity ♦ Original Thinking ♦ Personal Integrity ♦ Character Through Service

Across all grade levels, we follow a student-centered approach to learning. Our students develop mastery of traditional fact and process-based standards while utilizing hands-on, developmentally sound lessons to regularly investigate and construct knowledge. Through a rigorous blend of student-led research, publishing and presentation across the curriculum, our students develop the superior critical thinking and problem-solving abilities required for success in college and beyond.

Our curriculum is rich in a well-balanced combination of child and teacher initiated projects in order to support the child's emerging interests as observed through play, photography and documentation, as inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. There is a strong emphasis in creating an environment that supports reflective thinking for both children and staff, developing deep, meaningful relationships with the entire learning community, the environment, and helping children grow in awareness of others and respect for all.

We believe in the power of a participatory school environment and expect our students to become deeply involved in all facets of their school experience. Each of our graduates departs to college as a multi-accomplished academic scholar, field researcher, student athlete, performing artist, community servant, and peer mentor. This approach, steeped in the tradition of the liberal arts, provides students with the strongest foundation for individual enrichment and lifelong success.
