FAQs

Online students in Utah have the freedom and flexibility to complete their education at home, allowing your student to receive an online education no matter where you live. Students access curriculum and lessons, as well as build valuable connections with teachers and peers. Many Utah online schools also offer in-person field trips and socialization opportunities.

Students in Utah can attend virtual school from kindergarten through high school. No matter the age of your child, virtual students have opportunities to gain key knowledge, acquire study skills, and develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime. With younger students, we find they learn best if a parent or other trusted adult serves as the student’s Learning Coach to help guide them through their coursework and stay on task.

Since Utah online public schools are a part of the state’s public school system, there is no tuition required to attend. Virtual public schools must meet the same state standards in education as traditional public schools.

Utah virtual school students and homeschool students both learn from home, but their overall experience is quite different. With homeschooling, parents are responsible for creating or buying the curriculum their student uses. They also teach each lesson and grade student work. At an online school, students receive a state-approved curriculum taught by Utah-certified teachers, which they access through an online portal.

Virtual school students may find a broader range of courses to choose from than what they find at a traditional, in-person school. High school students earn the same diploma as students who attend Utah public school. Virtual schools allow students to set their own learning schedule, which helps them to arrange their daily schedule around sports, personal interests, family responsibilities, or part-time employment.
