University School of Nova Southeastern University's Full Profile



University School of Nova Southeastern University says

Education should find the best in a child. Whatever their strengths -- artistic talent, scientific prowess, leadership skills -- students need the right balance of guidance and freedom to nurture these abilities. At University School, our students find the teachers to inspire them. They find the room to explore possibilities open to them. They find the independence and confidence to achieve. And, above all, they find what is best in them. University School welcomes inquiries throughout the year. Families are encouraged to apply as early as possible, beginning in September, for the following school year. The Admissions Committee evaluates applicants on the basis of the student's school records, teacher recommendations, interviews, and admissions tests. University School also carefully evaluates a student's talents, skills, interests, motivation, and character to identify those applicants who would be successful within our unique learning environment. Beginning in January, the Admissions Committee will consider candidates on a rolling basis until all vacancies are filled. Later applications may be considered for waitlist status.


At University School, our teachers find the style of learning that works best for each student, tapping into an unlimited enthusiasm for discovery. So, rather than require students to conform to one traditional format, we apply innovative approaches to the curriculum to reach every learner. Students master the material, but they’re able to master it in the best way for them, whether that’s through listening, reading, or doing. This focus on classroom innovation pays off – with inspired students and outstanding results.

Active learning is also encouraged at University School. Our students become participants in their own education. At all ages, our students find opportunities in the classroom to explore different roles, and discover where their talents lie. They work through ideas and concepts, learn to formulate questions, and see how information in textbooks, lectures, and internet resources applies to the world around them. This kind of engaged learning produces students who not only understand what they’re studying, but why they’re studying it.
