Since City Academy opened its doors in the fall of 2000, our tuition-free Salt Lake City charter school for 7th – 12th grade students has earned a reputation for truly helping its diverse student body transition from youth to adulthood.
The University of Utah educators who founded City Academy wanted the school and its students to play a role in improving the community’s quality of life. They also knew that as students were serving in the community, they were simultaneously broadening their learning through their involvement. The real-life
experiences from these service opportunities complement our students’ classroom learning. As a part of this commitment to academic service learning, each one of our students completes field work and an internship as a part of graduation.
