Academic excellence in preparation for college has been essential to our mission since our founders opened the doors of Memphis University School. We offer a wide variety of courses focused on the liberal arts – English, mathematics, classical and modern languages, history, sciences, and fine and performing arts. An experienced, dedicated, and caring faculty guides our boys on their way, as they discover how to learn and discern, how to think and how to reason.
Our teachers encourage all manner of intellectual pursuits as they share their own particular passions, be they detective fiction, robotics engineering, Portuguese culture, statistical analysis, Augustan poetry, the Maker Movement, or the math of music.
Our students are fully engaged in their educational journey, and their academic success is evident in Advanced Placement scores, participation in academic honor societies, success in interscholastic competitions, and college acceptances and scholarships. However, the ultimate measure of their – and our – success is the development of a lifelong love of learning.
