We want to meet your child!

The University School of the Lowcountry admission process is about finding the right fit. To assist your family with this process, we offer many opportunities for us to get to know your child and for your family to get to know us.

Open Houses

Open House events are held regularly throughout the year. They begin at 6 p.m. in the gym and include an opportunity to interact with faculty members, current students, parents, and others in the USL community. We begin with a brief presentation and offer tours of the school. We’d love to meet you!

Our next Open House is Thursday, May 23rd from 6:30-7:15pm and will be held off-site at the McHamon Playground Community Center at Hampton Park. Please see additional details in the calendar.

Tours & Shadow Days

We welcome you to come and visit University School of the Lowcountry to see what makes us so special – our faculty and students in action.

A tour is an intermediate step in getting to know us better. Tours can be scheduled at any mutually convenient time. We highly recommend visiting from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m., as you’ll be able to see our classrooms, observe Morning Meeting, and speak with students, faculty, and the Head of School.

A Shadow Day is the first step in our admissions process, as it allows your child to fully immerse themself in a typical day as a University School student. Shadow Days are usually scheduled on any day other than Wednesdays and begin at 7:40 a.m. 

We can’t wait to meet you!
