In February 2015, five Utah parents who were looking for a better educational opportunity for their children teamed up to create a new public charter school. These parents found this educational model at Williamsburg Learning, an Educational Services Provider that was already powering a national private school and a public, online charter school in Nevada. When this group of parents joined forces with Williamsburg, Leadership Academy of Utah was born! LAU was approved by the UT State Board of Education on February 5, 2016, acting on the unanimous recommendation of the State Charter School Board in January.

In the past six years all three of our children have been able to experience the incredible Williamsburg curriculum and have been inspired by the many mentors and students with whom they have interacted. We enjoyed the curriculum and experience but found the process difficult of going through a third party curriculum provider to get access to the curriculum and instructors. I have been privileged to be a part of the start up committee that worked to get the charter school application approved and have since then served on the Leadership Academy of Utah board of trustees. I am excited that LAU will be able to bring the great Williamsburg curriculum and instructors to many more Utah families. Email: email@example.com
