Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to Athlos Academy of Utah!

Thomas Jefferson once said, “Let us in education dream of an aristocracy of achievement arising out of a democracy of opportunity.” I love the Jeffersonian ideal of strengthening our students and consequently our society, and I believe the Athlos model is the means of achieving this.

The mission of Athlos is to empower students to live fulfilling, responsible, and successful lives by not only developing their minds, but also their personal characters and healthy lifestyle habits. In turn, we know that they will then be ready to face life’s challenges and be contributing members of society, like Jefferson, the father of public education, originally envisioned.

I am very excited to be serving the children and families of Athlos. Whether you’re a prospective family getting to know our school or an enrolled family with a need, please feel free to reach out at any time.
