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.

Grounded in Judeo-Christian values, the University School of Jackson provides an environment that stresses a respect for one another and all religions.

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.
