Why University
Liggett School?

Guided on a journey of self-discovery in a safe and supportive environment, students learn to embrace and explore their freedom. While the University Liggett School approach to education has evolved with the changing needs of each generation of students, we haven't wavered from our original mission; "to help young people more completely realize that which is within them and in doing so make positive contributions to society."

University Liggett School was founded on the belief that knowing one's strengths, passions and abilities are key to finding one's place in the world. Our community has endured for more than 100 years because we continually adapt and move forward without ever straying from our principles. Today, our students continue to learn more, experience more and go on to do more.
