Every child is unique and no two gifted children are alike. But if you suspect your child would benefit from Canyons School District’s SALTA magnet program for advanced learners, now is the time to consider applying.

Students in kindergarten through the seventh grade can apply online starting Monday, Sept. 10 through midnight on Wednesday, Oct. 3. No late applications will be accepted.

SALTA serves students who demonstrate significantly high cognitive and academic abilities in comparison to peers. Due to the time-intensive and rigorous nature of the process for determining a student’s fit for the program, parents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the testing requirements well before completing an application. 

Testing is a two-day commitment, and results will be distributed in January.

All middle school applicants–with exception to Midvale Middle students–will test on November 5 and 6 at Mount Jordan Middle starting at 3:00 p.m. Midvale Middle students will test during the day at their school on November 7 and 8.

Elementary testing will take place in October. Applicants may choose between one of two possible dates per testing block and the following testing locations:

Testing Block A: Friday, Oct. 12 (after school) and Saturday, Oct. 13 at 8:45 a.m.
Canyon View
East Midvale
Peruvian Park

Testing Block B: Friday, Oct. 26 (after school) and Saturday, Oct. 27 at 8:45 a.m. 
Willow Springs
