December 17, 2021

We have had an amazing first semester, and we hope it’s been transformational for your student. As we complete finals and head into the winter break, now is a great time to reflect on all of the hard work that’s been done and take some time to rest and rejuvenate with family. We are so grateful for each of you and the educational journey we are on together: preparing promising students for meaningful lives as principled leaders.

Wishing you and yours a beautiful holiday season!


Pete Jensen

Executive Director, LAU

All eighth-graders will automatically be enrolled in a College and Career Awareness course. This course is required by the state of Utah for all eighth-grade students. This self-paced course will automatically show up in your student’s Canvas account and should be completed sometime during the semester. Please contact Shelly Jenkins with any questions. 

Upcoming vision screenings: LAU must provide vision screenings for all seventh and ninth-grade students. By default, all seventh and ninth-grade students will be offered screening, but you can opt-out your student by completing this form. Any LAU student can receive a vision screening regardless of grade. If you’d like your student to participate, please register them here. Please reach out to Suzanne Jensen with any questions.
