MORE ABOUT UTAH BOARDING SCHOOLS
'Promises to Keep' is a statement of vision and mission for the Utah State Board of Education. This statement relies on the language of the Utah Constitution for its central premise. It intends to focus on the work of the State Board of Education, the Utah State Office of Education, and all school districts, local boards of education, charter schools, and boarding schools within the general control and supervision of the Board.
The Utah State Board of Education is the governing body that maintains the Standards for all schools and districts. The Utah Core Standards are written by content area specialists, including teachers, university professors, and parents. They are reviewed through a public vetting process. A vote approves the final draft of the Standards of USBE members before they are implemented throughout the state.
The Utah school system (prekindergarten through grade 12) operates within districts governed by locally elected school boards and superintendents.
In Utah, students must complete 24 credits to graduate from high school boarding school with a diploma. These 24 credits are made up of 4 English credits, three math credits, three science credits, three social studies credits, 3.5 credits of directed coursework, two credits of physical education, and 5.5 credits of electives. Local education agencies can create additional requirements at their discretion and even modify requirements for particular boarding school students if needed. While standardized end-of-course tests and exams may be part of classes required for graduation, no standardized tests are listed as separate requirements.
Utah offers boarding school students academics that lead to a successful life after high school while also giving them the ultimate adventure. Utah is full of quaint little towns and beautiful state parks where students can explore the state's endless possibilities. Students going to boarding schools in Utah will never get bored.
