A free, public K-12 charter school with 7 locations in rural communities of Utah!

Mission & Vision

VISION

Provide modern educational reform opportunities to rural communities, using a blend of modern technology, traditional structures, and family involvement.

MISSION

Athenian eAcademy is dedicated to delivering a rigorous, standards-based education utilizing blended technology in a unique multi-satellite model across rural communities to create operation scale, yet remaining small enough in each rural community to provide school choice options that fit within smaller, rural communities. Currently choice options in these small, rural communities are limited to zoned, home or purely virtual school options. By cultivating a community of learning and academic excellence, Athenian eAcademy will bolster the number of at-risk students who are academically prepared for college work.


At Athenian eAcademy we honor and respect our flag and those who have fought to defend it. All scholars and staff are asked to stand and hold our right hand to our hearts when presenting the flag, reciting the pledge of Allegiance and the singing of our National Anthem.  Even though we have differences, we encourage civility towards all, especially during patriotic events.
