Self-Directed Coursework

Students enrolled in our program will utilize Utah Online School to complete coursework required for graduation. These are fully accredited, NCAA approved, and taught, graded, and supported by highly qualified Utah Online teachers. Students will be able to move through the coursework at their own pace, with freedom to move quickly in subjects where they excel, and spend more time in subjects that are more challenging for them. 

Any work students do not complete in the morning hours will be considered “homework” that they can complete outside of school hours.

 

Mentors

In addition to the assistance of their UOS teachers, adult mentors will be available to help students problem solve and introduce resources and techniques that build capacity. The role of our mentors is to cultivate community, empower students, cultivate community, and equip them with tools to take on the world. 

Community Learning

During this time, students will get to participate in things they have shown interest in, as well as new things they maybe didn’t know existed. Students will work together to discern what they want to learn and help plan their curriculum; each afternoon of the week will be different! Some days, we will go for a long hike in the afternoon, host a guest lecturer, or work on our capstone projects. We will also serve our community in meaningful ways through local partnerships, participate in internships, and visit businesses to learn about various careers.

Worldview Studies

What we believe about the world shapes and influences how we live. Following the Narrative Lectionary, a four-year cycle of readings, we will study the Bible, from Creation through the early Christian church. In so doing, we will discuss theology, anthropology, hermeneutics, metaphysics, applied ethics, and public policy.

Capstone Projects

We believe it is crucial for education to meet the demands of today’s economy. And, if we hope to spur innovation, we must find ways to free students to pursue some of their wildest ideas. Well-designed projects tackling real-world problems will help develop much-touted twenty-first-century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. Each year, every student will work on a year-long Capstone Project. This deep dive into a long-form project will relate to their interests, have an impact on the community, and integrate 3 or more subjects. 

Additional Options

Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) sanctions 14 sports and the activities of music, speech/debate and theatre/drama. Your students are eligible to participate in these activities according to the public school boundaries where you reside.

 

Utah Online School has a lot of resources available to our students! This includes things like Speech Services, Driver’s Ed, and ACT prep. In addition, UOS makes Original Credit and Credit Recovery Summer Courses available to 9 - 12th Grade Students. The summer semester begins June 1st and runs until July 28th (Enrollment closes June 6th). This coursework is available in conjunction with an internship with WCS’ Summer Camp program.

 

Finally, students are eligible to participate in Weber State University coursework, in the form of Concurrent Enrollment or Early College​.
