The Mission of SMUS is: "Our school seeks the excellence in all of us, with passion and compassion. We are a community shaped by the pursuit of truth and goodness, providing outstanding preparation for higher learning and for life."


The Latin Motto of University School was "Mens Sana in Corpore Sano," which means "A healthy body in a healty mind." St. Michael's School had the Motto "Nihil Magnum Nisi Bonum," "Nothing is great unless it is good." These two Mottos are still frequently used by the School today.
