University Liggett School, Michigan’s oldest coeducational independent day school, enrolls 560 students in PK-12.
The school is a result of the merger of four schools, the earliest of which is The Liggett School, founded in Detroit in 1878. The school recognizes the important role the city of Detroit has played in its history and is committed to establishing and maintaining the relationships with institutions in the city.
Liggett is committed to attracting and retaining the strongest and most qualified student body. Four years ago, the Liggett Scholars program was instituted as a way to attract students from the greater Detroit area. 35% of students are on financial aid.
The school values teachers who have a desire to be part of a transformation in learning and have an understanding that risk taking, innovation, and creativity be at the center of good teaching and learning.
