University School is an invigorating and caring environment for learning that was designed for high-achieving students who are kind, hardworking, curious, and smart. They are inspired and led by a dynamic, passionate, and empowered faculty. Offering grades 3-12 and serving approximately 80 students, University School seeks to develop self-confident, passionate, and empathetic learners who will make a positive difference in the world.
University School does not feature any learning interventions and offers a few standard accommodations.  Our comprehensive admissions process is used to enable the family and USL to determine if there is a good fit and if University School has the appropriate resources to attend to the needs of the student.

Tours & Shadow Days

We welcome you to come and visit University School of the Lowcountry to see our faculty & students in action.

A tour is an intermediate step in getting to know us better. Tours can be scheduled at any mutually convenient time. We highly recommend visiting from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m., as you’ll be able to see our classrooms, observe Morning Meeting, and speak with students, faculty, and the Head of School.

A Shadow Day is actually the first step in our admissions process, as it allows your child to fully immerse himself or herself in a typical day as a USL student. Shadow Days are usually scheduled on any day other than Wednesdays and begin at 7:40 a.m. Please review our Tips for a Successful Shadow Day.

Tours & Shadow Days can be scheduled by contacting us at (843) 884-0902, emailing Judy Hubbard, or filling out our inquiry form below.
