Power up your child’s learning with Canyons Online.
There’s still time to submit an application for your child to participate in Canyons’ remote-learning program for the 2022-2023 school year.
The applications will be reviewed in May.
While not envisioned as an alternative in in-person learning during the COVID-19 years, it’s undeniable that the era in which we are living played a part in attracting so many students to Canyons Online for its first year.
But even as COVID-19 cases wane and restrictions are relaxed, Canyons is redoubling its commitment to high-quality remote instruction.
To meet the needs of any student who wants to enroll— no matter where they live in the Utah — enrollment caps have been removed from Canyons Online classes for the coming school year.
“Canyons District’s commitment to providing a high-quality personalized learning experience for all kinds of students was shown with the launch of Canyons Online,” said Superintendent Dr. Rick Robins. “This program served as a great learning option for families who hesitated returning to neighborhood school in the midst of a pandemic, but it’s more than a COVID-19 response. We’re advancing the lessons we learned about remote-learning over the past two years to give choice and flexibility to students who want to learn at their own pace and from the location of their choice.”
High school students — ninth- through 12th-grades — register for Canyons Virtual High School courses on a separate schedule. Registration for the virtual high school courses is open year-round, with a two-week closure for system updates during the summer. Individual courses also are open to all Utah students.
All Canyons Online classes, from kindergarten through the eighth grades, have been at maximum capacity — with lengthy waiting lists — from the first day of the 2021-2022 school year, said Canyons Online Principal Michelle Shimmin.
“Canyons Online is for you and it’s about you. That is our vision,” Shimmin said. “More than ever, students have become navigator of their own education. We’re ready to help even more students in Canyon Online classes to grow, achieve, and reach their dreams.”
