High School Academics
Utah Virtual Academy (UTVA) knows success is not a single destination, and the journey can take many turns. But no matter the path, we believe in unlocking every learner's potential by meeting them where they are and helping them reach their goals.
Explore Our Courses
As students move through middle school and into high school, their work becomes increasingly independent. High school courses are designed for students targeting a four-year university, a local community college, or an immediate career.
Many high school courses are offered at two levels: on-level and credit recovery.
In both course levels, students:
Learn grade-level content
Complete coursework that might require writing or research projects
Tackle problems that require analytical thinking
Stride Career Prep
Your student can gain a competitive edge for the future—whether that includes college, a career, or both. Stride Career Prep prepares students to be work-ready and college-ready. Students can choose from a broad range of courses in the in-demand career fields of Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources; Arts, Audio/Visual Technology & Communications; Business, Finance & Marketing; Computer Science & Information Technology; Education & Training; Hospitality & Tourism; Human Services; and Law, Public Safety, Corrections, & Security. And they can earn certifications, college credits, or a full associate's degree through partnerships with local colleges and universities.
Get a Head Start by Earning College Credits Now
UTVA offers eligible high school students in grade 11 and 12 the opportunity to enroll in up to two courses per semester through local Applied Technology Colleges and Salt Lake Community College and apply college credit to both their school diploma and a post-secondary degree. Courses are offered at a low cost-per-credit, must align with the student's graduation plan, and a "C" or better must be earned in order to receive credit.
Eligibility is based on the admissions policies of each institution; however, there is an approval process through UTVA to ensure the course is cleared for high school credit and to determine how it will be applied to the student's transcript. Contact your counselor for more details.
Part-Time Option for High School
High school students may be eligible to take part-time courses through the Statewide Online Education Program (SOEP). For more information, visit our Part-Time SOEP page or talk to your school counselor.
