Academic Programs for 7th to 12th Graders:
Photo of Boarding School for Kids with Learning Differences in UtahProvo Canyon School has long maintained a tradition of academic excellence within the residential treatment community. Accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools since 1973, we offer direct classroom instruction for students in grades 5-12.

Teachers are certified in their content area, and currently have or are working on a Special Education Licensure. We maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio in order to provide students individualized help in both core and elective classes.

Many students who come to Provo Canyon School have struggled with academic performance in a traditional school setting. We offer students the opportunity to work toward their full potential through a supportive academic environment that includes positive incentives for good grades, two week monitoring of each student’s academic progress, daily study hall time, access to individualized teacher help, and daily feedback on assignment completion. For high school students, we also offer access to a library, and a career counseling center.

Providing three full semesters of coursework per year enables students who are credit deficient to work towards earning a high school diploma and provides opportunities for students to overcome learning gaps they may have developed due to truancy or other factors.

Students attend class in a traditional setting: Monday through Friday, 5 ½ hours each day, typically enrolled in six classes and a study hall. Those enrolled in the elementary program will study subject matter in an environment similar to that of a public elementary school setting, yet with the supportive academic atmosphere already mentioned.

Provo Canyon offers a curriculum that is challenging yet attainable. Throughout the school’s history, we have emphasized the belief that students have the ability to learn, change, progress, and grow. We are thankful and proud to have played a small part in the lives of the thousands of students who have made these changes in their life.
