University High School is an independent, college preparatory high school located in Carmel, IN. Our school is rigorous and personalized, and it has taken advantage of best-practice ideas from independent schools and colleges across the country.
At the center of the University High School experience is a set of ideas about students: that they are seen as partners in their education; that they be challenged, listened to, taken seriously, and helped to become active participants in their learning and in their lives; that they be encouraged to think about the meaning of their lives and about others, and to think critically; that they be encouraged to develop for themselves a sense of what truth is.
International students are an important part of the University High School community. Students and host families benefit from different perspectives, exploring new customs, sharing culture and community, and developing relationships that last a lifetime. University High School has welcomed students from countries all over the globe, including Brazil, China, Guatemala, South Korea, and Norway.
