About USJ

University School of Jackson is a non-denominational, non-sectarian, college preparatory school dedicated to academic excellence and to the founding principles of faith, service, and scholarship. Our mission is to instill a passion in our students for academic, artistic, and athletic excellence, while committing themselves to personal integrity, mutual respect, and lifelong learning.

Our focus on preparing our students for college sets us apart from other schools in West Tennessee. We offer our students a well-rounded education that starts with academics and includes athletics, fine arts, character education, and leadership opportunities.

A quality education is a wonderful gift to give your child. We encourage you to consider that education at the University School of Jackson.
