Why University Liggett School?
Guided on a journey of self-discovery in a safe and supportive environment, Liggett students learn to embrace and explore their freedom. In that independence, our learners find and apply their strengths, passions and abilities to find their place in the world.
While the University Liggett School approach to education has evolved with the changing needs of each generation, our founding mission prevails; "to help young people more completely realize that which is within them and in doing so make positive contributions to society." Our community has endured for more than 100 years because we continually adapt without straying from our principles. Today, our students continue to learn more, experience more and go on to do more.
Message From Our Head Of School
For more than 140 years, University Liggett School has provided an outstanding education to students who go on to lives of consequence, purpose, and fulfillment.
Come learn more about our dynamic educational approach, our dedicated faculty, and, most importantly, our outstanding students, who pursue excellence each and every day with curiosity, passion, and joy. I hope you get a sense of the special characteristics that make me so proud not only to lead this fine school but also to be a delighted parent of two of its students.
Throughout the year, we will provide a variety of opportunities for you to get to know our incredible school community. We strongly encourage you to take every opportunity to look deeply at the work going on in our classrooms, interact with our students, and engage with our parents, alumni teachers and coaches.
