Tuition-Free Public Charter School in Salt Lake City

City Academy is a tuition-free public charter school conveniently located in downtown Salt Lake City at 555 E. 200 S. Educators from the University of Utah’s College of Education founded our school in 2000. City Academy is an independent, public middle school and high school for grades 7 through 12 chartered by the Utah State Board of Education. Our school has small classes so that our capable and highly qualified teachers can work more personally with each student and engage them in meaningful learning.
