Career and College Readiness
A high-quality education empowers students. We are dedicated to strengthening educational opportunities for all Salt Lake City School District students. Education is not, nor should it be, a "one size fits all" model.
We support many pathways to prepare students for life after high school.
- Career and Technical Education (CTE)
- AVID (ADVANCEMENT VIA INDIVIDUAL DETERMINATION)
- ACT Prep
- Family and FASFA Nights
- Advanced Placement (AP)/International Baccalaureate (IB) programs
Donors and the Salt Lake Education Foundation work together to create scholarship opportunities that make meaningful differences in the lives of students.

2018-19 School Year ACT Statistics
A good ACT score helps ensure that students are prepared for their future by being more competitive for college admissions, merit-based financial aid and scholarships, and future employment opportunities. The foundation partners with community organizations to help provide free ACT prep classes.
Apprenticeships allow students to split their time between the classroom and workplace, applying knowledge through a hands-on learning routine.
Salt Lake City School District is piloting a new youth apprenticeship program, Talent Ready Apprenticeship Connection (TRAC). By linking the efforts of industry and education, the TRAC program creates a model that is beneficial to both students and businesses. After the students complete their first year of the apprenticeship, during their senior year of high school, they’ll then attend Salt Lake Community College, with full tuition paid for by Stadler US, as they continue the apprenticeship for two more years.
