Timpanogos Academy’s motto is “For the love of learning.” We strive to give our students a complete and comprehensive education using the rigorous Core Knowledge Sequence, Saxon Math and Spalding Language Arts. Other areas of emphasis include science, art, and music. In addition to academic excellence, Timpanogos Academy helps students develop the characteristics of “good citizenship” such as integrity, responsibility, self-discipline, and respect.
Timpanogos Academy opened its doors for the first-time in the Autumn of 2002. The Timpanogos Academy charter school is a free public school overseen by the Utah State Office of Education. The school’s enrollment is limited to 500 students in grades K-8. Timpanogos Academy is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors which is elected by the parents of Timpanogos students. Daily operations are overseen by the Principal who reports to the Board. Timpanogos Academy also relies on our parent volunteers who work primarily through our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
Timpanogos Academy provides a traditional, back-to-basics environment. In order to ensure a rigorous academic curriculum for our students, we hire certified teachers and train them extensively in the Core Knowledge Sequence. We also provide an optimal learning environment by limiting class size and requiring school uniforms. Parents of students are requested to volunteer 40 hours per school year.
Traditionally, applications have been accepted for the Timpanogos Academy Lottery from October 15 to November 30th of each year.
However, during the Nov ember 2013 board meeting, the School Board voted to extend the deadline this year beyond November 30th with the goal of moving that actual lottery to a later date that is more in line with lottery dates used by most Utah schools.
When a closing date for this years Lottery Open Enrollment period is selected, we will post it here and on the Enrollment page.
Until then we encourage all interested parents to continue using the Online Enrollment Form to enter their students into the 2014-15 school year lottery.
The image you see above in the upper right hand corner of this page is an image of an oil painting done by our elementary art teacher, Mr. Chapman. The original painting is part of a series he painted highlighting the mountain our school is named after. In addition to teaching, Mr. Chapman is also a studio artist.
Please feel free to contact him if you would like more information about this painting or are interested in his work. He can be reached at email@example.com We hope you enjoy the painting.
