Welcome to Memphis University School. We are a college-preparatory day school for boys in grades 7-12, and we are guided by the principles of truth and honor that have informed our work since 1893.
What we teach is shaped by what colleges expect of students they admit, by what we believe we should pass on from generation to generation, and by our mission to build ethical character.
Boys here benefit from a superior academic curriculum, small classes with individual attention, freedom within the constraints of our Honor Code, and peer encouragement to do their best.
MUS is a traditional school, and our concerns for academic literacy and strong character rest on time-tested traditional values – perseverance, courage, civility, honesty, industry, self-restraint, responsibility, and generosity.
We encourage our boys to aspire to leadership through numerous opportunities in athletics, the arts, service, and other extracurricular activities. Students quickly develop a sense of belonging within this community, while discovering unique ways to exercise their individual gifts.
An outstanding group of passionate, expert teachers do their work here. They know how to educate boys, how to motivate boys, how to design incremental challenges that help boys discover and develop their abilities. Our small class sizes enable our instructors to know their students. This familiarity puts the boys at ease asking questions and seeking advice. Combine excellent teachers with inquisitive minds, and extraordinary possibilities abound.
Please come visit our beautiful 94-acre campus at 6191 Park Avenue and learn for yourself. You are always welcome.
