Weekly Parent Update

May 17, 2024

Dear LAU Families,

Thank you for another fantastic school year! We are excited to see the largest graduating class in the history of Leadership Academy of Utah. It is an honor to work with our families and students, and we hope you plan to continue your student’s educational journey with us. 

As a reminder, please make sure to submit your student's application for the 2024-25 school year in SIS if you haven't already done so. This will enable us to register your student for classes for the upcoming year before the current school year ends. If you have questions about how to do this, you can reach out to our Registrar, Angela Maloy, by email or call customer support at 385-343-4111.

Additionally, I wanted to share some exciting new educational resources for our families. Beginning the 2024-25 school year, the School LAND Trust Committee has endorsed the following new opportunities for our students. If you would like to learn more about enrolling your student in the following opportunities, please email me, John Tripp, to begin the process.

  1. Free AP Courses (UC Scout)
    UC Scout is an online program that provides quality courses, including Advanced Placement (AP) classes, that are designed to be consistent with the College Board's guidelines. LAU will pay the costs for any student to enroll in an AP course through the UC Scout program. This opportunity saves $800 per course for interested students. Enrolling in this program enables students to earn collegiate credit and have a high-quality academic experience. Interested parents can learn more by visiting the UC Scout’s website and course offerings webpage.
  2. Math Resources
    In addition to the amazing AP options, the School LAND Trust Committee has approved the following math resources for our students: Mr. D’s Self-Paced Math, Alecks Math Support, and IXL Math Support. Participating in these resources allows students to grow mathematically and achieve greater academic success.
  3. Math Tutoring
    The School LAND Trust Committee is committed to supporting student math achievement through after-school tutoring with our WL mentors. We will begin to offer after-school math support from 3 to 5 PM MT. More information about this will be provided in August.

Finally, we value our partnership with parents to provide our students with the very best educational experiences. Again, we are especially grateful to our School LAND Trust Committee for their efforts to connect parents and students to high-quality resources. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me for more information about these new educational opportunities.

Enjoy the summer break, and we will see you again in the fall!

John Tripp

Executive Director, Leadership Academy of Utah
