The following underlying assumptions guide the organization and provision of special education services in our school:
Students receive a full range of appropriate special education and related services, in the general education setting and/or in pull out small groups or individual instruction. A small number of students are educated in specialized programs in the school. The goal of Athlos is to be able to provide a rich system of inclusive education.
Athlos Academies of Utah provides a comprehensive language development program for English Language Learners (ELL) with a focus on academic English language development in the areas of reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
The mission of the school counseling program at Athlos Academy of Utah is to provide a safe learning environment for every student. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of career and college readiness and counseling services. We focus on supporting students academically, socially, and emotionally to gain the necessary skills to be successful in life.
Counseling services include:
If your student needs help with a personal or academic issue, we are here for them. Our job is to listen to student and parent concerns and do our best to help in whatever way we can. Our goal is to ensure that each and every student reaches their fullest potential in school and life.
One of the things we are excited about doing for the 2019–2020 school year is facilitating small groups for students who need help with things like building better friendships, handling anger, learning better social skills, and managing stress and anxiety. Watch for these groups and let us know if you think your child would benefit from one. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for your student.
