College Preparation

The academic experience at Uinta is designed to prepare each student to pursue her future educational goals. For most of our students, this includes enrollment at a college or university. The academic program provides the rigorous curriculum and support to assist students in preparing for high school graduation and college/university attendance. We encourage our students to discuss their college goals and choices with their parents and their therapist.

Once choices have been made, our teachers assist students in researching colleges and universities, writing application essays and preparing for the SAT & ACT tests. Sophomore students take the PSAT test and juniors and seniors take both the SAT and the ACT tests twice a year. We also offer a Career Decision Making class and an SAT/ACT Prep class for which students receive elective credit on their transcripts. Likewise, we have three consecutive years of six foreign languages for students who are college bound. Uinta also offers advanced levels of a number of classes, as well as AP classes. Our success in preparing students for college is evidenced by the number of Uinta graduates who are attending universities all over the country.
