WE LC O M E Upper School TO THE


I have had a great time at USJ, and I honestly don’t think I would have had the same experience in any other school in West Tennessee. The students and faculty really make the school what it is. I remember being a little nervous and even afraid of entering ninth grade. I was used to knowing all the faces that I saw in the Middle School and felt very comfortable there, so the idea that I would be in a new building with new faces and more people made me a little nervous at first. That nervousness went away by my second week in the Upper School as I adjusted to my new surroundings. After the first couple of weeks, I discovered there is a significant difference between being a ninth grader and being an eighth grader. You have more choices and more freedom, as well as less hand-holding, in the Upper School, and those things have really made my experience enjoyable. There

Welcome from Ben Murphy, Upper School Director Hello! On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you and your families to the University School of Jackson’s Upper School. For our continuing students, welcome to a new part of the building. We are excited to be with you as you continue your journeys at USJ. For those of you new to USJ, welcome to a new school community; we are glad you are considering joining us. Thank you to everyone for allowing us to be a part of your family’s educational experiences. Ninth grade is certainly a transitional year for students as report cards become transcripts and middle school sports become varsity sports. Students go from being the oldest in their division to the youngest, from knowing everything about how a middle school works to knowing rather little about how an upper school works. For students coming to the USJ Upper School from other high schools, there is a transition process as well. One of our tasks as an upper school faculty is helping all students new to the Upper School adapt to a new set of academic expectations and become more confident in their abilities. This process will take some time, and our teachers will be there to work with these students and to assist in developing the skills necessary to be successful undergraduates. In the three years I have been at USJ, I have learned the Upper School faculty are among the most dedicated teachers one will find anywhere. They are committed to providing our students with a challenging yet supportive curriculum, and they approach each day with a focus on furthering their students’ learning. Your child will get to work with great teachers each and every day.

are many clubs to join, and while I have only joined the Chemistry Club and the Spanish Club, I have had a wonderful time with both. Another great thing about USJ is the teachers. There are so many teachers who are not only invested in their class but also in you. They genuinely want to

For our incoming students, graduation seems far away, and it will be here before they know it. During the years prior to their graduation, a lot will change for these students, and what will not change is USJ’s commitment to quality education. Our graduates are admitted into many of the finest institutions in the country, and we welcome the opportunity to help your children work toward their goals. Any journey begins with one step, and we thank you for the privilege of helping your children take their first Upper School steps at USJ. Thank you for choosing our school. Go Bruins!

help you and are available to answer your questions as best they can. I have come to love many of my teachers during my time in the Upper School, and several of them have greatly influenced me. Some have made me love the subject they teach, and others have made me a better person in general. I have really loved the time I have spent at USJ, and I do not think I would have this educational experience anywhere else. Michael Villarreal Senior

From Kay Shearin, Admissions Director I also extend a warm welcome to you and your family. If you are a current family, we appreciate your continued support of the University School and its programs. If you are a prospective family, we appreciate your interest in our school and welcome you to our campus. I invite your child to spend a day with us and shadow one of our students in order to learn more about the University School and see for yourself the endless opportunities that await your child at USJ. Upper School is an important time in your student’s life. The next four years are critical as your child prepares to meet the challenges of college and beyond. As stated in our mission statement, the University School is committed to guiding each student to reach his or her maximum potential and to developing a passion for academic excellence and lifelong learning. Our faculty and staff are also committed to building relationships and to working in partnership with our students and their families to ensure success in every facet of school life: in the classroom, in athletic endeavors, in the area of fine arts, and in service within our community. At the University School of Jackson, students truly receive an education for a lifetime.

Upper School Curriculum It’s true. USJ’s Upper School curriculum is challenging as we prepare students for college. The strength of USJ, however, lies not only in our Advanced Placement and Honors courses but also in every course in our curriculum. Each student is given the opportunity to achieve and to learn, and those who rise to the challenge find themselves well prepared for life after USJ. If students are willing to work and apply themselves, they can be successful in our curriculum. Ninth graders, for example, will learn how to use their time wisely and how to study. They will learn how to master the workload and still have time for extracurricular activities. Freshman courses include Algebra I or Honors Algebra I, French or Spanish or Honors French or Spanish , Biology or Biology Honors, English or English Honors, World History, and electives. Factors considered when placing students in honors courses include previous honors courses and placement test results. For a complete list of our courses, visit

Electives From Broadcast Journalism to Forensic Science, USJ’s curriculum is filled with a variety of elective courses. They include Accounting, Band, Book Study Seminar, Broadcast Journalism, Choir/USJ Singers/Concert Choir, Computer Coding, Criminal Justice, Digital Tools, Forensic Science, Intro to Theater/Advanced Theater, Journalism, Library Research and Operations, Psychology, AP Psychology, Speech, Strength & Conditioning, Studio Art, AP Studio Art, Study Abroad, U.S. and World Issues, Wellness, and World Religions.

During my 13 years at USJ, three things that I have come to love about my school stand out most. First, the environment is one like no other school. Each student is encouraged to be involved in fine arts, athletics, and academics. Still, our teachers never fail to stress the importance of our studies and the term “student-athlete.” Secondly, the teachers at USJ are supportive, encouraging, and approachable. Each class has anywhere from 15 to 25 students, which supports the development of personal relationships between students and teachers. Teachers have high expectations of their students, challenge them through new problems and situations, and prepare them for the classes to come. Finally, USJ is much more than a school; we are a family. From the Lower School to the High School, everyone is united. For example, each year our seniors and first graders participate in a fun event we call bridging. Seniors are paired with a first grader who becomes their buddy for the year. They write notes to each other, read books and play games together, and become friends. Our school has challenged me to become a better student by balancing academics with a busy schedule of extra-curricular activities. I’m thankful for the opportunity to attend USJ and the preparation I have for my future in college and life.

Will my child be prepared for college? Yes! USJ seeks to prepare its students for college through a challenging collegepreparatory curriculum and helps students pursue academic paths that work to their strengths. Classes at USJ are designated as College Placement, Honors, or Advanced Placement courses. A student can pursue more challenging coursework in areas where one feels strongest and in which the student has the most interest. Teachers use papers, projects, and exams to determine the breadth and depth of student knowledge. In fact, learning how to study for final exams, how to write major papers, and how to construct comprehensive projects are just some of the areas where students feel they are most prepared for college.

Tales from College Austin Orr’s biology teacher at Union University was setting up the first lab for the class. She asked, “Do I have any USJ graduates in this class?” When Austin, a 2014 USJ graduate, raised his hand, the teacher said, “If you have any questions when I’m gone, see him.” Austin helped his classmates manage their first lab, while they asked, “How have you done this before?”

It’s all about Honor!

Oath of Honor

The goal of the USJ Honor Code is that each student lives as a responsible person — one whose word is a bond, whose work is always his or her own, and around whom the property of others is safe. Lying, cheating, and stealing have no place at USJ.

At the beginning of each year, this oath is recited by all students:

In recognizing that honor can be learned, USJ uses an honor system to facilitate the Honor Code. The Honor Code is administered by the Honor Council, a body of class representatives elected by the students. Its duty is to present the concept of individual honor to all students and to uphold that concept through enforcement of the USJ Honor Code. The USJ Honor Code is predicated on the assumption that all students are honorable young men and women and have the right to be trusted. University School of Jackson students desire to learn in an atmosphere where honesty and integrity endure and are an integral part of their lives. Each student recites the USJ Oath of Honor, thereby accepting his or her responsibility for this Honor Code, at the start of each year. We believe that a culture of honor can only be created when students are held accountable to each other for the culture they create.

As a student at University School of Jackson, and on my honor, I will not lie, cheat, or steal, nor condone the actions of those who do.

USJ and Advanced Placement The Advanced Placement® program offers students the opportunity to study college-level coursework during high school. The AP program curriculum is set by the College Board and is equivalent to introductory courses taken the first year of college. At the end of the year, students participating in AP classes take a national exam. Depending on a student’s performance on the exam and its admission policies, a university may give the student college credit or advanced placement in college courses. However, even if a student does not achieve a score that qualifies for college credit, college admission offices look favorably on students who have selected this more challenging curriculum. Research also has shown that participation in AP coursework increases a student’s chances of doing well in college and the likelihood the student will complete a bachelor’s degree in four years. USJ offers 14 Advanced Placement courses, all certified by the College Board. Our strong AP program sets us apart from most other schools. By the end of their first semester of college, some USJ graduates are classified as sophomores because of the AP credits earned in high school. The AP curriculum requires students to develop critical-thinking skills in order to be successful. According to a January 2011 New York Times article, the College Board continues to prioritize critical thinking skills, explaining that the expectations are “important because critical thinking skills are considered essential for advanced college courses and jobs in today’s information-based economy.” According to the College Board, the key ingredients for success in an AP course are curiosity, creativity, and commitment. While USJ takes into account scores on placement tests for course scheduling, other criteria for placement in an AP class are a student’s desire to take the course and teacher recommendations. USJ teachers do not just want students who will make excellent scores on the AP exam; they also desire students who will add to the classroom environment and are willing to move out of their academic comfort zones. Much like college professors, USJ’s AP teachers use hands-on approaches to help students acquire the understanding needed to perform at an exceptional level and also expect students to take ownership of the course.

AP and College Admissions/College Success While intellectual curiosity should be a student’s main reason for taking an AP class, another consideration is the student’s college plans. If a student plans to apply to a selective admissions school or honors program, his or her coursework strongly factors into admissions decisions. In addition to helping a student get into college, research has also shown that participation in AP coursework is a proven factor in how well a student will do in a college setting. In fact, according to Rice University’s Center for College Readiness website, “Research demonstrating that AP courses increase students’ college readiness and completion is incontrovertible.” Interestingly, this college success does not hinge on the student achieving a high score on the AP exam. The Center for College Readiness cites studies conducted by the College Board, the Educational Testing Service, the University of Texas, and the U.S. Department of Education that indicate the college readiness achieved is not dependent on a student’s score on the test but rather having been a part of the AP program. In addition, participating in an AP course—again, regardless of the score earned on the national exam—also increases the likelihood that the student will complete a bachelor’s degree in four years. This successful college outcome can be achieved by taking even one AP course. Referencing a 2007 Hargrove and Dodd study, the Center for College Readiness states, “Students who took one or more AP courses and exams had higher college GPAs, earned more credit hours and were more likely to graduate in 4 years or less. The findings indicate that even AP students who took the course and scored two out of a possible five points on an AP exam will still tend to do better in college than a student who did not take AP courses or who skipped the AP exam.”

Look at USJ’s AP course selections and decide if you want to make this a part of your college preparatory education—even one AP course can make a difference! In 2016, the average score across the nation of the more than 150,000 students taking the AP Spanish Language test, including native speakers of Spanish, was 3.79. In comparison, 100% of USJ students passed with an average score of 4.25. Jimmy Glosson, Chair of the Foreign Language Department and AP Spanish Language Teacher says, “USJ excels in AP Spanish because of our curriculum, our students, our teaching methodology, the opportunity to study abroad while in high school, and our teachers. When I grade AP exams every other year in Cincinnati with some of the best teachers in the nation, I am so proud to see how our students outperform their peers around the world. I say world because the AP program is global.”

All of the AP courses offered at USJ have been audited and certified by the College Board. A major strength of USJ’s AP curriculum is our teachers. Our 11 AP teachers have extensive experience in both the classroom and with the AP curriculum. Nearly all have been AP graders, meaning they have graded the free-response sections of AP tests for the College Board, and all have attended AP workshops and training courses. All USJ students in AP courses are required to take the Advanced Placement test in order to receive AP credit on their transcripts. Advanced Placement tests are graded on a 1 to 5 grading scale with 5 being the top score and 3 being a passing score. In tests taken in Spring 2016, 91 percent of USJ students scored 3 or higher on their Advanced Placement exams. The state average for a score of 3 or higher was 58 percent.

Foreign Language USJ’s Upper School offers four years of Spanish and four years of French. Honors and Advanced Placement courses are also offered in both languages. As much as possible, French and Spanish teachers immerse students in the language from the moment they enter the classroom. Because of this, many USJ graduates are fluent in a foreign language, preparing them for today’s global marketplace. In alternating summers, Spanish students are given the opportunity for an immersion experience in Costa Rica, and French students also study abroad. Students can earn credit after taking either trip.

A Spanish Tale from College Marisa Mariencheck, a member of the USJ Class of 2014, did so well on her Spanish placement test at Washington University in St. Louis that she was placed in a 300-level Spanish class. The head of the department asked to meet with Marisa and read some of her Spanish essays. Marisa took him a paper she wrote for Jimmy Glosson. The department chair was so impressed that he invited her on a spring break trip he led to his native country of Cuba.

A year ago, I came to USJ as a junior. Moving to a different school is already difficult, but on top of that, I also moved to a different state. I used to live in Texas, and I had amazing friends there. I could not imagine having a life apart from them. With this in mind, I was also worried because it was my junior year of high school. Everyone knows that is the hardest year of high school. I was afraid I wouldn’t fit in or have any friends. I would soon find out none of that was true. Through students I met and shadowed, I already had close friends before the first day of school. In a short amount of time, I became close to everyone I met. USJ is about more than the friends I have made; the school has a very advanced curriculum. The first weeks I had a hard time keeping up and getting used to this level of hard work, but the teachers and staff helped

me. When I look back, I can see how much I have improved in my two years at USJ. One thing that I have seen improve tremendously is my work ethic and art skills. I have learned to work hard on my homework each night to get good grades. As my U.S. history teacher would say, I have learned to be a champion. My art skills have improved way beyond what I thought I could accomplish. USJ has been truly crucial to my life. The staff has helped me in so many ways. From ACT prep to college help, they have helped me stay on top of my deadlines and have answered all of my questions about college. They have also corrected all of my various college essays. I feel prepared for college, and I know I will be successful because of the lessons USJ taught me. USJ has been so important in my life, and I am so grateful it will be my alma mater.

Athletics Home of state championships in nearly every sport, University School of Jackson’s athletic teams frequently advance to the postseason. Since spring 2012, we’ve won state championships in baseball, softball, and boys’ doubles and team tennis. Football, boys’ cross country, boys’ tennis, girls’ soccer, and both boys’ and girls’ golf were state runners-up, the girls’ cross country team came in third place, and girls’ tennis reached the final four. The competition cheerleading squad earned a top-10 finish on the national level. USJ’s Middle and Upper Schools field 36 teams in 13 different sports for students interested in athletics, and our athletic complexes are among the best in West Tennessee.

Community Service and Leadership

A Community Service Story

We offer our students many opportunities to become leaders, to learn how to make real decisions that have a real impact in others’ lives. We also instill in our graduates a mission to help others. Besides our student-led Honor Council, we have more than 20 clubs and interest groups. They range across all disciplines and provide students with opportunities to pursue their passions. All clubs and every grade are required to complete a community service project each year. Upper School students must also log 50 hours of community service hours to graduate.

The Make-A-Wish Club began in 2015 as an interest group and was initiated by student Ubaid Tanveer. The group obtained club status in 2016 and has begun fundraising in hopes of helping to grant a wish of a child with a life-threatening illness. The club hosted a 5K Christmas Color Run on December 5, 2015 and another for Homecoming 2016. They are developing other events and ways to fundraise. The group is approximately 50 members strong. “My favorite thing about this club is the way they each show so much compassion toward this cause and the children who benefit,” says Mrs. Carla Roach, club sponsor.

Visual Arts USJ offers a comprehensive and sequential visual arts program. Students can pursue a four-year art curriculum that culminates in one or more Advanced Placement Art portfolios. These portfolios are often used by students to gain admittance to some of the most prestigious art and design colleges in the United States, including the Parsons School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology, both in New York City, and the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. Students also have the opportunity to participate in numerous art competitions throughout the region. For example, four students had winning entries in the Briarcrest Regional Art Competition this year, and 15 students had artwork accepted into the TAEA West TN Regional Student Art Competition, with USJ students winning two best in category awards. Students also compete in the annual National Scholastic Art Competition, receiving several regional Gold and Silver Keys last year with one student receiving a National Silver Key. Students also have the opportunity to participate in summer art intensives. For the past two summers, several students have attended the Appalachian Center for Craft High School Summer Art Intensive with their instructor and learned fine craft skills, including glass blowing and basketry.

Choral Program The USJ Choral Program offers many opportunities. The program includes Freshmen Choir, USJ Singers, and the USJ Concert Choir. The USJ Combined Choirs perform many concerts throughout the year, including Veterans Day, Christmas, and the annual spring Pops Concert. USJ is proud to have a high number of students selected to the Regional Honor Choir and the Tennessee All-State Choir as well as the All National Honor Choir. Additional performance opportunities include Quad-State Honor Choir, National Honor’s Ensemble, ACDA Division and National Honor Choir, regional Solo/ Ensemble Festival, and the UTM Honor Choir. Dian Eddleman, Director of Choral Activities, presently serves as Southern Division President-Elect of the National Association for Music Education. She directs the Concert Choir and USJ Singers. Dr. Tammy Grant directs the Freshmen Choir.

Performing Arts USJ is the only school in West Tennessee that puts on two full-scale musicals and two dramatic productions per year. A live student orchestra/band accompanies our musicals. We also have the only Tri-M Music Honor society in the region. Our students get the opportunity to perform in diverse shows throughout the year, from Disney classics to dramatic plays. No other school in West Tennessee provides such an array of theatre. The year’s fall musical, featuring students as young as second grade, was Disney’s The Little Mermaid. The spring musical will be Disney’s High School Musical. The Middle School students, along with ninth graders, will put on two junior musicals this year: Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr., April 1 & 2, and Shrek Jr., April 30 & May 1. Music Theatre International has again asked our musical theatre director, Dr. Tammy Grant, to produce these shows in order for their company to see how our school arranges the music for a live band. Our middle school productions are one of the few in the nation to have a live band. Last Spring, the theatre department was asked by ASPELL, a rehabilitation center in Jackson, to write a play breaking the stigma on drug addiction. Three USJ students worked with theatre teacher, Erica Davidson, to write a dramatic show called Wake Up. The play is about an upper class family dealing with the pains of prescription drug addiction and raised over $2,000 for the non-profit organization. The cast then took the show to a competition at The Renaissance Center where two USJ students were awarded with Best Actress and Best Actor honors. They are in the process of preparing for the spring show, Snow White in the 70’s, a funny spoof on the classic Snow White. This disco-crazed show will have you grooving in your seats.

Band Program With an emphasis on teamwork, the USJ Band program is all about making a difference in the lives of our students and community. USJ’s expanded program ranges from All-West Orchestra, Jazz, and Concert Band, to All-State (Solo & Ensemble), Honor Bands, musicals, and church ensembles in which students can participate. First-year students have their first concert at Christmas. By the time a student moves through our band program from 6th grade to 12th, they have played every style of music available to them. We are most excited for our opportunities in Musical Theater. Through the efforts of Dr. Grant, our band students have the opportunity to assist in the writing and recording of the pit orchestra music for Jr. versions of musicals. Our band students are influencing and providing an opportunity for musicians from other schools and community groups to play and perform the scores of musicals for their organizations instead of using pre-recorded music.

Did you know? The 82 students in USJ’s Class of 2016 were offered more than $7.8 million in scholarship money! They planned to attend 27 different colleges in the United States.

College Advising The mission of our College Advising team is to provide guidance throughout high school as students determine the best academic courses for their college interests and as they search for colleges that fit their personal and professional aspirations. Freshman and sophomore students and their parents meet individually with Shannon Whisenant, Assistant Director of College Advising, to discuss course scheduling and colleges of interest, as well as to introduce a plan for college entrance testing. Mrs. Whisenant also introduces families to Naviance, USJ’s online college advising tool that allows students to track their GPAs, activities, and test scores. Junior and senior students and their parents meet with Carol Ryan, Director of College Advising, to develop a college visit list, discuss individualized college entrance exam preparation, and explore students’ professional interests and aptitudes with the YouScience Profile. Mrs. Ryan guides seniors in refining their potential college list, developing their college essays, seeking references, and pursuing scholarship opportunities.

The College Advising Office hosts events for students and their families throughout the school year. Evening programs are hosted for juniors and seniors and their parents in the fall. Each winter, we offer a junior seminar featuring sessions conducted by college admissions professionals. Throughout the year, the College Advising Office hosts coffee klatches for parents on special topics, including federal and state aid opportunities.
