City Academy is an intentionally small school with engaged students and a strong school community.  Students who are curious, committed to learning progress, willing to work hard, interested in being involved in school life, and have goals for college will be a good fit for City Academy.


New students are admitted to City Academy through a lottery process as required for charter schools by state and federal policy.  Any students not currently attending City Academy who are interested in enrollment for next fall should fill out and submit the Lottery ApplicationLottery Applications must be in by 12:00 noon on February 16th, 2018. We anticipate our spaces to fill quickly.

Lottery Application forms may be delivered by hand, through the mail, by email to, or faxed to the school at 801-521-4181.

Check Learning Progress During the Quarter

Student academic progress can be monitored through our Canvas LMS. Canvas offers a full suite of tools to help you stay connected with your teachers, submit and keep track of assignments, and much more.

Students are able to steward their own learning by monitoring their own progress.
